Junior Eric Anderson of The University of New Haven’s men’s basketball team came into the season as a highly regarded player on the Chargers, and on Saturday he printed his name into Charger history as he reached the 1000-point plateau.

When asked who he would like to thank, Anderson responded, “Well first and for most God. Also my mother for supporting me at every home game she can make it to,” said Anderson, “and last but not least my teammates and coaches.”

Anderson was a three point shooter coming out of NJ when he first got to New Haven, but over the years he developed into a threat in every aspect of the game.

“I never expected to get the 1000 points so early, but I did expect to get it,” said Anderson, “It feels great couldn’t have done it without my teammates.”

Anderson was the defensive player of the year in the Northeast-10 last year along as the leading rebounder and second in the nation in double-doubles, but with all of this he still feels like he has more to prove.

“I feel as I have a lot more to work on and keep improving my game and getting better.”

Anderson is considered not only one of the top players in the conference, but the entire nation. He averages a double-double this season with the Chargers.
