This is the first time in 10 years Miami has had a player earn All-America recognition with Wally Szczerbiak being named a first-team honoree by four publications and a second-team selection by three other organizations in 1999. Ron Harper earned second-team honors by four organizations in 1986, while Wayne Embry was a third-team selection by Helms Athletic in 1958.
Bramos was named the 2009 Mid-American Conference Player of the Year, becoming just the fifth Miami player to capture the honor.
He was a two-time all-MAC honoree, earning first-team distinction in 2008-09 and second-team honors in 2007-08. He was a four-time MAC East Division Player of the Week recipient during his senior campaign and ranked second among league leaders in conference-only games in scoring, averaging 17.6 ppg. He ranked among MAC statistical leaders in six categories this season.
Bramos etched his name on six Miami career statistical top-10 lists (scoring, 3-point field goals, 3-point field goal percentage, free throw percentage, blocked shots and steals). He amassed 1,515 points, ranking sixth on Miami's career scoring list and becoming just the sixth player in program history to record 1,500 career points, joining such notables as Harper, Szczerbiak, Devin Davis, Eric Newsome and Damon Frierson.
