For over 30 years, BCAM – the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan, in association with the Detroit Free Press, has sponsored the Hal Schram Mr. Basketball award, given to the state’s top prep senior. Lansing Eastern’s Sam Vincent was selected in the spring of as the recipient of the first award.

The Retro Mr. Basketball project, launched in , will span ten seasons.  The program is designed to honor the state's top senior prep basketball players from the years through ,  In , BCAM recognized seniors from , , , , , and This year, the organization honors seniors from , , , , and In , the list will be complete, with the total number of "Mr. Basketball" award winners numbering

As with the modern-day honor, the goal is to focus on high school careers. Hence, information pulled from All-State, All-Area, All Conference and All-Tournament teams is used to guide the committee as they select nominees for the award. Mid-year graduates are considered for the award in their last full-year of high school basketball. (See the class for two examples).

While gathering statistical information on players from the s and s presents challenges, BCAM did not want to avoid honoring athletes from the era when the center jump was a dominate feature of the game.

“BCAM has considered trying to go back to years previous to and coming up with players that would have been named Mr. Basketball if there was such an award at the time,” notes BCAM executive director Tom Hursey. “The Retro Mr. Basketball project accomplishes this goal. The basketball fans of Michigan will enjoy going back in time and either agreeing with or finding fault with our committee’s winners. Either way it will be fun reminiscing about days gone by.”

(Winners of the "Retro" Mr. Basketball award are listed first in ALL CAPS, followed in alphabetical order by those selected by the committee as nominees.)
