LIU Brooklyn senior point guard Jason Brickman was named the Northeast Conference Men’s Basketball Co-Player of the Week. Brickman shares his third career NEC Player of the Week honor and the first weekly award of the season with Bryant’s Dyami Starks.

Brickman did what he does best and then some on Saturday in leading the three-time defending NEC champion Blackbirds to an 87-80 win over Saint Peter’s at Barclays Center. Brickman shredded the Peacocks with precision passing and registered some timely buckets on his way to a 13-point, 14-assist, six-rebound, three-steal performance.

With the Blackbirds trailing by two with just over three minutes to play, the San Antonio native sparked an 11-0 run by assisting on three-of-four buckets, highlighted by a dish to junior Landon Atterberry in transition to cap the scoring and give the Blackbirds an 81-72 lead with 49 seconds to play.

The 14 assists were two shy of his career-high of 16, set against Quinnipiac on February 18, 2012, and was also the highest single-game mark in the NCAA through the first weekend of play. Brickman, a preseason All-NEC honoree who led the nation with 8.5 ppg a year ago, lifted his career assist total to 733, just 72 shy from establishing a new NEC record.

LIU Brooklyn returned to action on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Indiana.
