List of Men's Basketball Academic All-America Team Members of the Year is a list of the annual selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America and its Academic All-America sponsor of the individual athlete selected as the most outstanding of the annual Men's Basketball Academic All-America selections. Between 1996 and 2011, one winner each was chosen from both the College and University Divisions for all twelve Academic All-America teams including football. The Academic All-America program recognizes combined athletic and academic excellence of the nation's top student-athletes. The University Division team included eligible participants from National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I member schools, while the College Division team included scholar-athletes from all of the following: NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), Canadian universities and colleges and two-year schools.

Beginning in 2012, COSIDA revamped its award structure. The University Division was renamed "Division I". NCAA Divisions II and III now have their own separate All-Americans, while the College Division now consists only of non-NCAA institutions.

Currently, each team selects Academic All-District honorees in eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada.[1] First team All-District honorees make the All-America team ballots. Currently, all twelve Academic All-American teams (men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's track & field, men's baseball, women's softball, men's American football, women's volleyball and men's and women's at-large teams) have four Academic All-Americans of the Year, one from each division. In each of the four divisions (College, Division I, Division II, and Division III), one of the twelve sport-by-sport Academic All-Americans of the Year is selected as the Academic All-America Team Member of the Year for that division.[2] The most recent men's basketball player to receive the all-sports honor is Colton Hunt of Randolph College in Virginia, who won the Division III award for 2013.[3]
