NAISMITH TROPHY PRESENTED BY AT&T FACT SHEET

How to Vote:

The Naismith Trophy Presented by AT&T is unique because it allows fan voting to count for an unprecedented 25 percent of the final vote. No other major award involves this much fan influence.

About the Awards:

The most prestigious trophy in college and high school basketball, the Naismith was first awarded to the men’s college basketball player of the year in 1969 (Lew Alcindor, UCLA).

In 1983, the Naismith Awards also began recognizing the women’s college basketball player of the year (Anne Donovan, Old Dominion). The Awards further expanded in 1987 to honor the men’s and women’s college coaches of the year, the boy and girl high school players of the year, and, in 1988, the men’s and women’s college officials of the year.

Selection: In November of each year, the board of selectors, comprised of coaches, administrators and media from across the country, chooses the preseason top 50 “watch list”. In February, the Naismith voting academy narrows the list to the top 30 based on athletic performance. In March, the voting academy selects the four finalists who will go to the final ballot. The winner is selected by a board of selectors vote in conjunction with fan voting.
Leadership: As the creator of the Naismith Trophy, the Atlanta Tipoff Club was founded during the 1956-57 basketball season and has since been armed with the mission of promoting the continued support for the game of basketball and recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of those who make the game so exciting.
