To be clear... I'm not suggesting this point guard is a Top 5 starter.  But in a time when Fordham was playing exciting, competitive basketball... and consistently making the NIT, he was a quality contributor.  Especially in his Junior year:

Eric Brooks - 1987

http://www.nytimes.com/1986/01/09/sports/fordham-coach-thinks-positively.html

This article from 1986, before we played #1 UNC at the Garden, will bring back quite a few fun and relevant memories.  Many great quotes from Penders.  Including our place in NYC basketball relative to the strong St Johns teams (Walter Berry!).

Eric was a pure point guard.  Quick, active on D, unselfish.  And a really nice guy on campus.   BTW... this 85-86 team had a terrific freshman named Joe Paterno.   Overlooked too much in these memory lane discussions.

See the roster and schedule below.  Our OOC schedule included Arizona State, Brigham Young, Stanford, UNC, Notre Dame, Dayton, St. John's, Seton Hall,

Assistant Coach Reese Mariconda, who had been with us for 4 years, a former Virginia Tech star infielder, is leaving to be Assistant Coach at Georgia Tech.  GT used to be a top 50 team but had fallen off to 155 last year.

Tough time to be losing a key assistant, in the middle of recruiting season.

As a true point guard, I'd have to agree.

A coach on the floor. Always got the ball to his teammates at the right time and spot, underrated defender who played the passing lanes well, very good shooter. He played point guard like be played shortstop on the FU Baseball team. Efficient and talented.

Didn't me make it to Triple A as a shortstop?

Jackie Burik was the best point guard I've seen play for Fordham. Hands down.

He went to the wrong high school in Miami, but other than that I agree!
