Coming in hot: Guard Malcolm Delaney, who's one of the most dangerous scorers in the ACC, has averaged 18 points over his last two games.
Number to know: 38.2, minutes per game for Malcolm Delaney. Nobody in the ACC is averaging nearly as many minutes as Virginia Tech's iron man. His average of 38.2 minutes per game far exceeds the 34.6 mpg mark of runner-up Kyle Singler of Duke.
Contender or pretender: After defeating Duke to improve its NCAA tournament chances, Virginia Tech suffered devastating losses to Boston College and Clemson. The Hokies always find a way to finish short of the NCAA tournament, and they're likely to defeat Georgia Tech in the opening round but fall Friday against Florida State.
