The kid Jason Brickman, Filipino American point guard for Long Island University Brooklyn Blackbirds, clinched the top 24 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award. The said award is a prestigious accolade that is given to the top male collegiate point guard. Here is the criteria for the award:

Standing at six feet and averaging 11 points and 10 assists per game, Brickman is definitely putting in that work for the Bob Cousy Award. Plus, he leads in assists for this year’s Division 1 Men’s Basketball season.
Checkout this video that LIU’s Brooklyn Blackbirds put together of Brickman’s assist game in action.
I’m not much of an avid basketball fan, but after watching the video Brickman does have a good “court-sense” meaning he knows what is happening around him and where to pass the rock to his team. And it seems that the dude’s pass is like the Midas touch, instant gold buckets (ha!). But keep a lookout for Brickman though. The pool of 24 finalists will be cut down to the top 5 players by early March. Fans can vote for Brickman here.
