You may be right. Shows Jones, but was last updated 3-10-13
True I just knew it was McDermitt for most of the season and had a great game a few games back. Still MoMo definitely is a talent, just had a bad attitude. Wish we could have gotten him, but if we did Green may not be the player he is today. It really is just unbelievable how far he has come from freshman year
He deserves the award.
He deserved consideration for national player of the year. But something is better than nothing I suppose.
Nope. It wasn't Cousin Joey. The Hoos In Hooville are all in bitch and moan mode.
Very well deserved, incredible season and production given the lack of a supporting cast
I'vr never seen so many sore-tailed Hoos in one spot in my life over on Le Pickle Fork. You'd think someone killed their pet kitten because EG won POY and their boy didn't come close.
Great sports day!
EG wins ACCPOY, and Barca destroys Milan!

Well, I'll be ..... a HOKIE ! Awesome. Would have bet a mortgage payment it wouldn't happen !
This maybe the dumbest thing ever said on there.....
"If I'm picking my team from across the ACC, he's not in my first 5 picked"
That's not nearly the dumbest thing said on this topic alone. For that I submit this moron:

not the most valuable player to his team.
I don't see how this one makes any sense by any metric...
Hooville's Joe Harris only received .....wait for it.....2 whole votes. 2. ::smirk:: Thus the crowd is unruly.
They are unruly because it was Green/VT. That's the bottom line.
I would love for the hoo I quoted to share with us just who he thought the VT team MVP should have been. There were just so many other worthy candidates to choose from????
From the hoo board
A Ball hog on a team that, well...that sucks and has no one else! He really should have averaged aboud 50 points a game, then he could have said something. 25 is no big deal on that team. NOT impressed
I find it pathetic to award a player on the 12th place team in a 12 team league the POY. He's a fine player but no where near ACC POY imo. Plumlee's numbers are outstanding, Larkin was solid all year and Harris made a claim, I'd have Greene behind those 3 fwiw.
don't care if he scored 500 points per game. His team went 4-14. It's a joke that he's POY, and it's an embarrassment to the ACC. I don't even think he should be on the First Team All-ACC.
Those Hoos =
Erick Green =
Any Hoos in general =

Oh definitely. If it had been anyone else named ACC POY, they'd be lined up to congratulate him. But it's Green/VT so nope. Can't have that. One Hoo went so far as to say that all the team was interested in was making sure E.G. got his points and not in winning at all. Called Eric a POS who was a detriment.
And blows.....all in the same breath.
Well, if you never watched him play maybe you can draw that conclusion. In game after game I watched, Green typically had a low scoring first half because he ran the offense, distributed the ball well, and tried to get the rest of the team involved. Into the 2nd half it became evident that no one else could finish or complete a play and Green started doing more on his own. Personally from watching, I got so frustrated watching him pass and shots get missed, and wished he would have been much more selfish.
I have never seen a more able and talented player be less selfish with the ball than Green.
True dat, Smitty. We're really going to miss Eric next season. :(
He (EG) made VT basketball enjoyable for me this year. He was terrific last year, but this year he carried the team in EVERY game. I hope that JJ has a plan for next year because unless someone steps up, it will be a long year.
I love how UVA can talk about their great defense then in the next breath talk about how teams let him score and he sucks. HE DROPPED 36 on them.
Who is Joe Harris? Seriously, never heard of him.
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
UVA does have a great defense..stats don't lie.. Erick Green is the ACC POY and he deserves it.
I said it on this board a few days ago. Eric Green was the best player in the ACC this year. Justice was done and the young man deserves what he earned. Any other choice would have been a travesty. ...
