Robbie Hummel

Robbie Hummel Named USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year

  • Date:
    Dec 12, 2019

Robbie Hummel, who helped lead the USA men to its first FIBA 3x3 World Cup gold medal and who was named MVP of the event, today was named the 2019 USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year.

“It’s incredibly humbling,” Hummel said of the honor. “I think when you look at the names that are on that list, it’s like, ‘Man, I’m not sure that I really belong almost.’ You are looking at guys like Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson and the Dream Team. It’s pretty cool. I’m very honored to have won this award. It is a product of a lot of hard work that our 3x3 team put in and the success that we had. I’m very thankful I got to play with a group of guys that just wanted to win.”

USA Basketball has presented its Athlete of the Year awards annually since 1980.

“Robbie helped USA Basketball accomplish an important milestone in winning our first FIBA 3x3 World Cup men’s gold medal, and it was an impressive honor for him to be selected as the MVP at such a competitive event,” said Jim Tooley, USA Basketball chief executive officer. “We are proud to recognize Robbie’s incredible performances, and we are grateful for his commitment.”
