DeMatha C BeeJay Anya named to national team

As DeMatha Coach Mike Jones indicated last month, Stags sophomore center BeeJay Anya was named to the USA Basketball Men’s Developmental National Team on Thursday.

Anya, who is 6 feet 8 and 290 pounds, had a breakout season, earning attention from college coaches across the nation as he averaged 8.9 points and was a presence inside at both ends of the court.

Twenty-four players were invited to training camp in mid-June in Colorado Springs, where coaches – including Jones, who is an assistant coach for the team – will pick a 12-player roster to compete in the FIBA Americas Under-16 Championship from July 21 to 25 in Leon, Mexico. The top three teams in that tournament qualify for the 2012 under-17 world championship in Lithuania.

Here is a recent video of Anya talking about the schools recruiting him:
