The Southland Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year is a basketball award given to the Southland Conference's most outstanding player. The award was first given following the conference's inaugural basketball season of 1963–64. Five players have won the award two times: Jerry Rook, Larry Jeffries, Andrew Toney, Ryan Stuart and Thomas Walkup. No player has ever won three times.

McNeese State has the most all-time winners with eight. Two conference members have never had a winner: Houston Baptist and Incarnate Word; these schools are relatively new to the league, having both joined in 2013. Another school that entered in 2013, Abilene Christian, has one winner from its past tenure in the conference (1963–1973).
