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.

Allen, a student of basketball founder James Naismith, organized a nationwide protest which ultimately resulted in the dribble remaining part of the game.In 1939, the NABC held the first national basketball tournament in Evanston, Illinois at the Northwestern Fieldhouse. Oregon defeated Ohio State for the first tournament championship. The next year, the NABC asked the NCAA to take over the administration of the tournament. In exchange, the NCAA provided complimentary tickets for NABC members to the Finals and placed an NABC member on its Tournament Committee.NABC initiatives include establishing the original Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, the format of today's NCAA Basketball Tournament, and the College Basketball Experience and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame at the Sprint Center arena in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
