Maryland men's basketball picked to finish tied for fifth in unofficial Big Ten media poll

There weren’t many surprises in the unofficial Big Ten preseason media released Tuesday.

Michigan State was the unanimous pick of the 28 voters, including one from the Baltimore Sun.

Wisconsin center Ethan Happ and Spartans forward Miles Bridges were unanimous first-team selections, and Bridges got every vote for Player of the Year.

Compiled by Brendan Quinn of The Athletic, here was the outcome.
