Pete Newell Big Man Award
The Pete Newell Big Man Award has been awarded by the National Association of Basketball Coaches since 2000. It is presented to the top low-post player each season. The award is named after Pete Newell, the coach who ran the Pete Newell Big Man Camp for low-post players from 1976 until his death in 2008.
So far, no player has won the award more than once. Only three schools, Duke, Utah, and Purdue have produced more than one winner; Duke has had three winners, and Utah and Purdue have two each. Utah's winners are the only two to have been born outside the U.S.—Andrew Bogut in Australia and Jakob Pöltl in Austria.
