RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State senior big man BeeJay Anya didn’t travel for Wednesday night’s game at No. 14 Florida State.
The school announced Anya wouldn’t play in a brief statement released a few hours before tipoff. The release didn’t provide any details why Anya didn’t make the trip, saying only it was a “coach’s decision.”
The 6-foot-9, 320-pound Anya is averaging 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds, but has had a shrinking role on a struggling team. Anya has played a combined 14 minutes in the past two home losses to Syracuse and Miami, and didn’t play at all at Louisville.
N.C. State (14-10, 3-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) is also without sophomore reserve forward Shaun Kirk due to the school’s concussion protocol.
