Ajdin Penava is a little known big man from Bosnia and Herzegovina that has been having a very productive junior season for Marshall.

He’s an athletic big man that can finish plays around the basket to get scores, and he is also a good passer for a player his size.  Penava was instrumental in helping Marshall get a surprising upset win over WIchita State, as he could be a player to keep an eye on in the future.
