There weren't many surprises in the unofficial Big Ten preseason media poll released Tuesday. Michigan State was the unanimous pick of the 28 voters. Maryland finished in a tie for fifth. Wisconsin center Ethan Happ and Spartans forward Miles Bridges were unanimous first-team selections, and Bridges got every vote for Player of the Year. Not a single Maryland player received a vote for first-team consideration, though Bruno Fernando got a vote for Freshman of the Year over Michigan State's Jaren Jackson Jr., who earned the honor. ... Maryland sophomore forward Justin Jackson was one of 21 players named to the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award watch list, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced.
