Benedict College’s Ay’Anna Bey has signed a professional contract with the Avides Hurricanes in Scheeßel, Germany. She recently left Columbia to join the team in Germany.
Bey finished her stellar career at Benedict as the Lady Tigers’ all-time leading scorer with 2,263 career points and all-time leading rebounder with 1,188. She was a two-time SIAC Player of the Year, several All-Region teams and a pair of All-American teams. During her career, the Lady Tigers won a pair of SIAC Championships and Bey was named MVP of the 2020 SIAC Championship.
The native of New Jersey will be making her first trip overseas and is excited about joining the team in Germany. She recently told the local German newspaper that she can’t wait to join the team.
“I can promise the team that I will give my all every day,” she told the Rotenburger Kreiszeitung & Rotenburger Rundschau. “My strength is exploiting my defender’s weaknesses – whether it’s post or perimeter. I’m a two-way player who can also shoot threes.”
The Hurricanes start their season Sept. 24 against the ChemCats Chemnitz.
