Elechi is a graduate of Morehead State University, where during his senior year with the Eagles he averaged 8.3 points and 5.5 rebounds. He was very efficient from the field (53%) during his time there and was also very effective on the boards especially at the offensive end. His aggression and presence on the inside is tipped to complement the other two bigs that are already on the Rocks roster in Achara and Thomas.
Coach Sterling Davis had the following to say about his most recent acquisition:
“Anthony is a natural born hard worker. He had a very solid college career on which his coaches had nothing but promising things to say about his production. He will bring us great energy on both ends of the floor along with athleticism and strength. What drew me to him was how crafty he was around the basket and determination to rebound the ball.”
