That year he was selected to the 1972 State University of New York Conference All Conference team, an honor he repeated in 1973 and 1974. Although the team did not advance as far his junior and senior year, he was showered with accolades, being named a first team All American in 1973 and 1974. He capped this when he was named the 1974 Hermann Trophy winner as the best collegiate player in the nation. Oneonta State inducted Quraishi into its Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999.
