NC State's Anya doesn't travel for game at No. 14 FSU

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.
