What Q factor are your cranks?

EDIT - If i'm not mistaken, your Anthem is standard english BB, so, no.
However, you could retrofit with a Zipp VUMA BB (english threaded BB that takes a 30mm spindle) - however at $100 ea, and shitty bearings, its not really good on the wallet.

Probably Not

The Anthems from 2010 and older have threaded bottom brackets. The 2011 model has a Shimano BB71, press fit bottom bracket. I don't think either is compatible with BB30 without some sort of adaptor.
