LIU Brooklyn senior Jason Brickman was named to his second Preseason All-America team in as many weeks as he earned an honorable mention spot on NBCSports.com’s Mid-Major Preseason All-America team.

Brickman was one of 30 players cited by the online publication and adds this accomplishment to his recent spot on the Lou Henson Preseason All-America list.

A 6-0 point guard from San Antonio, Brickman put together a record-setting 2012-13 season. He dished out 290 assists to lead all NCAA Division I players and broke his own school record previously set in 2011-12.

The total also eclipsed the league mark set in 1987 by Andre Van Drost of Wagner.

Not just a distributor, Brickman led the NEC in three-point field goal percentage at 46.2 percent and tied for 19th nationally in the category. He also ranked third on the team in scoring at 9.5 points per contest.

For his career, Brickman holds the all-time LIU Brooklyn career record with 719 assists and is 100 away from cracking into the NCAA’s career Top 25 list in the category.

His 7.12 career assists per game average ranks 23rd in the NCAA record book and his 2.18 assist-to-turnover ratio is 18th in NCAA history.

Brickman and the Blackbirds won their third consecutive Northeast Conference championship last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season.

LIU Brooklyn begins its quest for a fourth straight title on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn against Saint Peter’s at noon.
