United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) was founded in 1956 by Walter Byers and serves the interests of journalists who cover college basketball.

The USBWA annually selects a player of the year and All-America teams for both men and women in college basketball. The USBWA men's player of the year award, called the Oscar Robertson Trophy, was first established in 1959 and is considered to be the nation's oldest such award in college basketball.

The USBWA also selects a national coach of the year for men and women, with the men's award named after legendary coach Henry Iba.

The USBWA annually awards college scholarships to students pursuing careers in sports journalism and to children of USBWA members. The USBWA also honors past and current members for career achievements with the USBWA Hall of Fame.

In addition, the USBWA presents a Most Courageous Award to a player, coach, or official in college basketball who demonstrates extraordinary courage in life and the Katha Quinn award, in honor of the former Sports Information Director at St. John's Universitymarker, to individuals who have excelled servicing the media or provide an inspiration to sports writers.
