Kelsey Mitchell of Inkster and Madison Ristovski of Grosse Pointe University Liggett are part of a four-player class that signed letters of intent with Michigan on Nov. 9.
They are also finalists for award, presented by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan and the Detroit Free Press, given to the state's best senior player. The finalists were announced by the Free Press on Friday.
The other finalists include Branndais Agee, a guard from Detroit Cass Tech headed to Michigan State, and two players that are undecided on where they'll play college basketball: Detroit Pershing guard Caprice Dennis and Detroit Country Day guard Aerial Powers.
BCAM members vote for the award. The winner will be announced March 12.
Michigan junior guard Jenny Ryan was the last Miss Basketball winner to play at Michigan. She was selected from from a 2008-09 field that included six finalists - including future Wolverines Rachel Sheffer (third) and Nya Jordan (sixth).
Current Michigan freshman Nicole Elmblad was runner-up for the award last season.
Michigan's recruiting class also includes Symone Denham of Columbus, Ohio, and Rebecca Lyttle of Hollywood, Fla.
