New Haven’s Majur Majak stands for praise, West Haven, Feb. 26, 2023.

On Mon. February 27, the Northeast-10 (NE-10) named their All-Conference teams and players of the year for the 2022-23 season to celebrate the players that made the conference one of the strongest across the NCAA Division ll.

The fourth-seeded New Haven men’s basketball team had three players honored, each playing a key role in the success of the Chargers all season.

Forward Majur Majak was named the NE-10 Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, becoming the fourth player in conference history to do so. Coming off a campaign in which he averaged 11.3 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game, Majak was a major piece of a New Haven defense that allowed a conference-low of 62.8 points per game.

Majak was also one of six players in the conference named to the All-Defensive team, highlighted by his 11-block performance against rival Southern Connecticut State University. The defensive facilitator was a huge part of New Haven’s success on their half of the floor, keeping teams away from the basket all season.

Guard Quashawn Lane was named first team all-conference coming off a season in which he finished 12th in the conference in points, averaging 14.7 in 28 games played. New Haven’s newest member of the 1,000-point club also moved into the top five of career assists with 393 as the leader of the offense that has averaged 72 points in their two playoff games played.

In guard Ty Perry’s first season with the Chargers, he was named to the NE-10 third team, finishing tied for the team lead in points per game with 14.7. Perry recorded double-digit points in 22 games, scoring 20 or more in eight of them.

New Haven’s quest for a conference championship continues against number-one seed Southern New Hampshire University tonight. Majak, Lane and Perry, as well as the rest of the team find themselves one win away from reaching the NE-10 championship for the first time since the 2018-19 season. It has been an all-around great season for the Chargers and they will need to continue to play the brand of basketball that has gotten them this far.
