Jason Brickman Shatters the NEC Assists Record With 96-93 Win Over NJIT

USA TODAY Sports

LIU Brooklyn slipped past NJIT 96-93 tonight, but it was a career achievement by a Blackbird that would steal the show. Jason Brickman is now the NEC's all-time assists leader.

The LIU Blackbirds had to sweat it out tonight to get their third win of the year in a 96-93 victory of NJIT. While the victory was a quality one on the road against a scrappy Highlanders squad, it wasn't the potential springboard for LIU that was the biggest story.

With 13:39 remaining in the second half Troy Joseph would convert a layup to put the Blackbirds up 53-38. Away from the basket it was the pass that would make history as it was senior Jason Brickman's 805th career assist, which would shatter the previous record set by Marist's Drafton Davis.

Brickman would finish the evening with 21 points and 6 assists in the Blackbirds three point victory. He is now averaging 9.7 assists through nine games this season. If Brickman even moderately continues that pace then he'll dish out well over 1,000 assists for his career.

The seniors career high single game performance for assists came during his sophomore year when he dropped 16 dimes on Quinnipiac. He has twice reached 14 assists in a game this year first against Saint Peter's on opening night and later on Norfolk State.

Brickman's next chance to drop some dimes will be next Wednesday when LIU hosts 1-7 Lamar.
