None of this would be possible without the support of my family and friends. Go Broncos!”

Anderson appeared in all 30 games for the Tritons last season, including 27 starts, and was named the top freshman in the Big West by During league play, Anderson led all freshmen with 15.8 points and 3.9 assists per game, and he earned All-Big West honorable mention recognition.
