The Kyle Macy Award is presented annually to the top freshman in Division I college basketball. The 1975 Indiana "Mr. Basketball" played his freshman season at Purdue University, averaging 13.8 points a game while leading the Boilermakers in free throws, shooting .859 percent from the line.


He started in 25 of 27 games, leading Purdue to a 16-11 record. After playing his freshman year at Purdue, he transferred to Kentucky in 1976, where he started every game for the Wildcats one year later. A three-time All-America and three-time All-SEC player, Macy was a member of Kentucky's 1978 national championship team. As a senior in 1979-80, he became the first Kentucky player to be named consensus Southeastern Conference Player of the Year.
