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.
One more thing: not a single Maryland player received a vote for first-team consideration, though Bruno Fernando got my vote for Freshman of the Year over Michigan State's Jaren Jackson Jr., who earned the honor.
Compiled by Brendan Quinn of The Athletic, here was the outcome.
My reasoning for not voting any Terps on the first-team was simple: I think Mark Turgeon's team will be less of a one- or two-man attack than it's been at times with Melo Trimble and Dez Wells since Maryland joined the Big Ten.
Just as I had a difficult time voting for one of last year's freshmen starters to be on the all-freshmen team — I eventually chose Justin Jackson — it's hard for me to decide from among Jackson, Kevin Huerter and Anthony Cowan, as well as Fernando.
As for picking Maryland to finish fifth, given that the Terps have never finished worse than tied for third, there's a good chance that the voters (including me) are underrating Turgeon's team. Except for the Spartans, I don't think there's much of a difference in the next five teams.
Where the Big Ten media is officially with the first-team selections will be known Thursday when the league convenes in New York at Madison Square Garden, site of this year's post-season tournament. The official poll does not include an order of finish.
