Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year

ACC Men's Basketball Player of the Year
Awarded for the most outstanding male basketball player in the Atlantic Coast Conference
Country United States
Presented by Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (1954–present)
ACC head coaches (2013–present)
First awarded 1954
Currently held by Jahlil Okafor, Duke

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Men's Basketball Player of the Year is a basketball award given to the men's basketball player in the Atlantic Coast Conference voted as the most outstanding player. It has been presented since the league's first season, 1953–54, by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association, and beginning in 2012–13 has also been presented in separate voting by the league's head coaches. The award was first given to Dickie Hemric of Wake Forest,[1] and the coaches' award was first presented in 2013 to Shane Larkin of Miami.[2]

Two players have won the award three times: David Thompson of North Carolina State and Ralph Sampson of Virginia.[3] Hemric, Len Chappell, Larry Miller, John Roche, Len Bias, Danny Ferry, Tim Duncan and J. J. Redick have won the award twice. There have been two ties in the award's history, which occurred at the end of the 2000–01 and 2012–13 seasons: In 2000–01 Joseph Forte of North Carolina and Shane Battier of Duke shared the award;[4] and Erick Green of Virginia Tech and Larkin shared honors in 2012–13. Green and Larkin split the honor in the first year that the ACC began voting for players of the year by the conference's coaches and media separately (the media chose Green while the coaches chose Larkin).[2][5]

Twelve players have received either the Naismith or Wooden National Player of the Year awards in the same year that they received an ACC Player of the Year award.[a] North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough is the most recent player to achieve this; the consensus national player of the year in 2008, he won every major national award in addition to the conference player of the year award. Duke has the most ACC Players of the Year winners with 15. Each of the original 1953 ACC members has had at least one of its players win the award. Five ACC members have not had a winner: Florida State, Louisville, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse. However, of these schools, only Florida State joined the ACC before 2013. As of 2015, the award has been given 63 times in 62 seasons. Fifty-one different players from ten schools have received the award: thirty-five seniors, twenty-two juniors, eight sophomores, and one freshman.
