The ACC announced the 2010-11 All-Conference selections on Monday, and two Hokies were honored. Senior guard Malcolm Delaney was a first team selection, while senior forward Jeff Allen made second team.

Delaney, who averages 18.8 points per game, received 202 of a possible 225 points. The other first team players were Duke guard Nolan Smith (unanimous), Maryland center Jordan Williams (210), Duke forward Kyle Singler (199) and Boston College guard Reggie Jackson (190). Smith was the only unanimous selection, and the North Carolina Tar Heels became the first ACC champion to have no players selected to the first team.

Jeff Allen received 131 votes, and was the last player to make second team. Others included UNC forward Tyler Zeller (161), UNC forward John Henson (148), UNC forward Harrison Barnes (145) and Georgia Tech point guard Iman Shumpert (132).

FSU forward Chris Singleton, Clemson guard Demontez Stitt, BC forward Joe Trapani, Miami guard Malcolm Grant and UNC point guard Kendall Marshall made up the third team.

It marked the second year in a row that Malcolm Delaney was named First Team All-ACC. He is the first Virginia Tech player to earn that honor two years in a row.
