Special to the Breeze , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

FGCU will celebrate the historic 2012-13 men's basketball season on Monday, April 15, when it hosts its postseason banquet at Alico Arena.

During the 10 days leading up to the banquet on its website, will highlight 10 accomplishments and moments of the Eagles' record-setting campaign that let the nation in on the best kept secret in college athletics and created #DunkCity.

It starts with sophomore Brett Comer's run to his second straight Atlantic Sun assists title, being the Eagles' floor general and conductor of #DunkCity.

After leading the A-Sun and finishing second among freshmen nationally in assists per game in 2011-12, Comer defended his league crown in 2012-13.

* Just the fourth player in A-Sun history to lead the league in assists two straight years.

* Tops in the A-Sun and currently 14th in the nation in assists per game (6.6).

* Ranks fourth in the NCAA Tournament leaders in assists per game (10.3).

* 244 assists were the second-most in A-Sun single-season history and second-most in FGCU history.

* Led the A-Sun with seven double-digit assist performances.

* Established a career-high of 14 assists in the NCAA third round against No. 7 seed San Diego State.

* Team leader in assists 36 of 37 contests.

* Passed out 7+ assists in 18 games.

* Ranked fourth in the A-Sun in assist/turnover ratio (+1.8).

* Produced a positive assist/turnover ratio in 26 games.

* A-Sun active leader with 11 career double-digit assist games.

* Already ranks second all-time in FGCU history with 422 career assists and 23rd in the A-Sun annals.

* Just 191 off the all-time A-Sun assist record.

* Has led the team in assists 65 of 69 career games.

Although he's not one of FGCU's many high-flyers and accounted for only one of 148 dunks, Comer is considered the conductor of Dunk City. Fearless in nature with an uncanny ability to see the floor, Comer assisted on 66 of the Eagles' 148 throw downs.

The former high school teammate of New Orleans Hornets rookie guard Austin Rivers, Comer captured the nation's attention with 1:54 left in the second half against No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament second round when he flipped a lob to teammate Chase Fieler for an electrifying alley-oop that gave the Eagles a 67-58 lead and brought the 20,125 fans at the Wells Fargo Center out of their seats.

Comer was named the A-Sun Tournament MVP after finishing with 21 points, five assists and three steals in the championship game against top-seeded Mercer.
