Haggerty Award
Awarded for the New York area's top men's Division I basketball player
Location New York metropolitan area
Country United States
Presented by NIT; MBWA
First awarded 1936
Currently held by D'Angelo Harrison, St. John's

The Haggerty Award is given to the All-Metropolitan New York Division I men's college basketball player of the year, presented by the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) and the Met Basketball Writers Association (MBWA). First presented in 1936, it is arguably the oldest and most prestigious award given to a metropolitan area player.

As of 2014, the award has gone to players from 15 Division I schools. St. John's University in Jamaica, New York has the most at 25, more than twice the nine awards received by players from number two Seton Hall University.

Three players won the award three times: Jim McMillian from Columbia University (1968–1970), Chris Mullin of St. John's (1983–1985) and Charles Jenkins of Hofstra (2009–2011). McMillian would go on to win the 1972 NBA Championship with the Los Angeles Lakers; Mullin went on to win two Olympic gold medals (1984, 1992) with Team USA, was a five-time NBA All-Star and was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011; and Jenkins has played in the NBA and Europe.
