The winner of the 2013 Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award is Peyton Siva, University of Louisville. The award is given annually to a senior, six-foot-and under, who thrived in the classroom and on the basketball court. “Peyton Siva is one of the elite players in college basketball,” said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. “He excelled not only on the court but also in the classroom and it is an honor to recognize Peyton for all of his outstanding efforts this year. He is very deserving of this prestigious award.” Peyton was named the 2013 Big East Tournament MVP, 2013 All Big East third team, 2013 Big East Academic All-American and 2013 Big East Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He holds the Big East tournament and school record for steals in a Big East tournament game with seven, which also made him UofL’s all-time career leader with 236 steals. Siva finished the 2013 regular season averaging 9.7 points, 5.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. The award is named in honor of James Naismith’s daughter-in-law.
