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.
