Each year, the Iowa Mr. Basketball award is given to the male athlete chosen as the best high school boys basketball player in the U.S. state of Iowa in the United States.

Awarded since 1981, winners are chosen by the Iowa Newspaper Association at the time that annual all-state selections are made. [1] Most of the award winners have gone on to play at the highest levels of college basketball, and some have continued play in the National Basketball Association.

Voting is done on a points system. Each voter selects first, second, and third-place votes. A player receives five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote, and one point for a third-place vote. The player receiving the most points receives the award.
