BCAM Hall of Honor

The BCAM Hall of Honor was established in 1994 to honor those persons who have helped to improve basketball in Michigan. These honorees have been longtime supporters of their local teams or have given outstanding service to the game of basketball. Awards are given in four categories: Officials, Media, Assistant Coach and Friend of Basketball. To be eligible for the Hall of Honor, a person must have been involved with basketball for at least 20 years. That person must be nominated by a BCAM member or a person that the BCAM Board of Directors has appointed. 

Nominations are always wanted for Hall of Honor. Nomination forms are available to print at our website under NOMINATION FORMS.
