N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried put sophomore forward BeeJay Anya on the scout team in practice. It has helped Abdul-Malik Abu in practice and has served as motivation for Anya.
“He doesn’t like it a whole lot, but it’s where he is,” Gottfried said. “It’s where he’s going to stay for awhile until he can step his game up like we want him to.”
