Beejay Anya Brings Blue Collar, Shot-Blocking Game

In an era of above-the-rim mixtape videos, featuring high-flying aerial theatrics, 6’-9”, 275 pound center Beejay Anya is relatively grounded. But with an innate ability to block shots, and a forceful post presence, Anya knows who he is on the floor – a feared defender and true interior standout.Despite not being an elite leaper, Anya used tremendous timing and long arms to establish himself as perhaps the best shot-blocker at the USA Basketball 17U mini camp. He establishes dominance in rebounding his area, and sent more than his fair shots of shots away from the hoop. (Hoopniks.com)
