High school career
Brickman played prep basketball at Tom C. Clark High School in San Antonio, Texas. In his senior season he led Clark to a District 28-5A championship behind the strength of a 29–7 record. He was named the district's most valuable player, earned first team all-district honors and also earned Class 5A All-State honors from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.
In the fall of 2010 Brickman began his collegiate career for Long Island. As a freshman in 2010–11 he averaged 5.5 assists per game, led the Northeast Conference (NEC) in total assists (180) and in assists-per-turnover ratio (2.81). The 180 assists were the fourth-highest season assist total in school history. He also helped lead Long Island to a berth in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, and in a first round loss to North Carolina, Brickman recorded eight assists and two steals. Then-head coach Jim Ferry claimed Brickman was the "John Stockton" to their team. At the end of the season he was named the NEC Rookie of the Year by the NIT and Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association as well as being selected to the NEC All-Rookie and All-Tournament teams.
The Blackbirds earned a second consecutive berth to the NCAA Tournament behind Brickman and NEC Player of the Year Julian Boyd. Brickman's 7.3 assists per game ranked fifth nationally while his 249 total assists set a new school record. He was chosen as a Second Team All-Conference performer while also repeating as an All-NEC Tournament selection; in the NEC championship, Brickman scored 18 points and dished out 11 assists against Robert Morris, thus clinching their automatic 2012 NCAA Tournament berth. Long Island lost to Michigan State in the first round.
Brickman led NCAA Division I in assists per game with an 8.50 average. He managed this despite Long Island losing reigning NEC Player of the Year Julian Boyd to an ACL injury in December 2012 that sidelined him for the entire season.
