Green Earns 1st Team ACC Honors

 

Virginia Tech Sports Information – Virginia Tech guard Erick Green has been named to the 2013 All-ACC Men's Basketball first team, as selected by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association on Monday. 

 Green, a member of the second team last season, was named to the first team on 72 of the 73 ballots returned. The senior from Winchester, Va., becomes the first Virginia Tech player named to the first team since Malcolm Delaney in 2011. 

 The nation's leading scorer, Green has scored in double figures in every game this season and leads the ACC in scoring in both overall games and conference games. He is averaging 25.4 points per game and is shooting 48.2 percent from the field. He also leads the ACC in minutes played (36.4 mpg).

 Green set a new school record with 786 points scored this season, breaking the old mark of 785 by Bimbo Coles in the 1989-90 season. In the regular season finale at Wake Forest on Sunday, he scored his 1,700th career point and moved past Ace Custis into 10th place in career scoring at Virginia Tech. 

 The Hokies will return to action on Thursday, March 14, as they will play NC State in the first round of the 60th ACC Tournament in Greensboro, N.C.
