The Big West Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year is an annual basketball award given to the Big West Conference's most outstanding player. The conference was formed in 1969 and was known as the Pacific Coast Athletic Association until 1988; the award was first given following the 1969–70 season. No player has won the award three times, but there have been seven two-time players of the year. Larry Johnson of UNLV was also the national player of the year in 1990–91, the same season of his second consecutive Big West Player of the Year accolade.

Long Beach State has had the most all-time winners with 12. There have been three ties in the award's history, most recently in 2007–08. Among present Big West members, two schools have had no winners: Cal Poly and UC Riverside.
