The Patriot League Men's Basketball Player of the Year is a basketball award given to the Patriot League's most outstanding player. The award was first given following the 1990–91 season, the first under the Patriot League name and also the league's first season as an all-sports conference. There have been four repeat-winners of the award: Adonal Foyle of Colgate (1996, 1997), Brian Ehlers of Lafayette (1999, 2000), C. J. McCollum of Lehigh (2010, 2012), and Mike Muscala of Bucknell (2011, 2013). Holy Cross and Bucknell claim the most winners with five and three other schools are tied with three winners apiece.
As of 2014, three Patriot League members have not had a winner: Army, Boston University, and Loyola (Maryland); only Army was a member before 2013. No ties have ever occurred for the Player of the Year award.
a Fordhan and Army were not charter members of the conference when it was established as the football-only Colonial League in 1986. They became members in 1990 when the conference became an all-sports league (and also adopted its current name).
