Currently held byNolan Smith, 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 by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association as the most outstanding player. The award was first given following the 1953–54 season, the first year of the conference's existence, to Dickie Hemric of Wake Forest.[1]

Two players have won the award three times: David Thompson of North Carolina State and Ralph Sampson of Virginia.[2] Hemric, Len Chappell, Larry Miller, John Roche, Len Bias, Danny Ferry, Tim Duncan and J. J. Redick have won the award twice. There has been one tie in the award's history, which occurred at the end of the 2000–01 season, when Joseph Forte of North Carolina and Shane Battier of Duke shared the award.[3]

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 14. Each of the original 1953 ACC members have had at least one of its students win the award. Florida State, Miami (FL), and Virginia Tech are the only schools without a winner. As of 2011, the award has been given 59 times in 58 seasons. Forty-six different players from ten schools have received the award: thirty-two seniors, twenty-two juniors, six sophomores, and no freshmen.
