Andrew Joseph (Fuzzy) Levane (born April 11, 1920 in Brooklyn, New York) is a former basketball player and coach. A 6'2" guard, he played collegiately at St. John's University. He spent three years in the NBA and its predecessor league, the Basketball Association of America, playing for the Rochester Royals, the Syracuse Nationals and the Milwaukee Hawks. In his final year with the Hawks he was a player-coach.

Levane coached the Hawks for one additional season, then coached the New York Knickerbockers. He returned to the Hawks, now playing in St. Louis, for a final season in 1962.

The original Fuzzy's son, Neil, aka Fuzzy, was a basketball star at Great Neck South high school on Long Island, New York from 1963-67. After playing for a year on the freshmen team at the University of Houston, he transferred to St. John's University in Queens where he played from 1968-70.
