Senior point guard Jason Brickman closed out his LIU Brooklyn career by becoming just the fourth player in NCAA history to record 1,000 assists in the Blackbirds’ 81-62 loss to Bryant on Saturday.

Brickman, who had 12 assists in the game, tied his own LIU and Northeast Conference single-season record with 290 assists in 2013-14.

In the process, he also became just the second player in men’s college basketball history to average a double-double in points and assists in a year, the other being Avery Johnson for Southern in the 1987-88 season.

The all-time career assists leader is Bobby Hurley, the former Duke star who was part of back-to-back NCAA championship teams in 1991 and 1992. Hurley finished his career with 1,076 assists.

The other players on the list include Chris Corchiani of N.C. State with 1,038 assists and Ed Cota of North Carolina with 1,030.

Brickman, who finishes his career with 1,009 to rank fourth all-time, exited to a standing ovation from the home crowd for the final time in his LIU Brooklyn career.
