Finished senior season at Oregon by being selected a John Wooden All-American, a Sporting News All-American Second Team choice and an AP All-American Third Team member after leading the Pac-10 in scoring with 17.7 ppg...Brooks was the first player for the Ducks to lead the conference in scoring in more than 15 years, more than enough to earn him All-Pac-10 First Team honors and a spot on the Pac-10 All Tournament Team as well...With 621 points in 2006-07, Brooks posted the seventh-highest single-season total in school history and his 1,521 career points are ninth at Oregon...Not only was Brooks the go-to guy in terms of scoring, he also led the Ducks with 149 assists in 2006-07 and finished his career with 471 dishes, placing him fourth on the school`s all-time list...Was
responsible for almost four and a half rebounds per game and recorded 48 steals as a senior, all while hitting better than 40 percent of his three-point attempts...Somewhat slight by point guard standards, Brooks makes up for his deficiencies with great quickness and effort at both ends of the floor...Has a habit of getting tunnel vision on offense, focusing more on his own scoring opportunities than creating for his teammates.
