Michigan State juniors Cassius Winston (pictured) and Nick Ward join eight other players on the All-Big Ten preseason men's basketball team, announced on Thursday at Big Ten Media Day in Chicago.

Michigan redshirt junior Charles Matthews is also on the team, while Purdue's Carsen Edwards was voted as the preseason Player of the Year.  He was also a unanimous selection for the team, along with Wisconsin senior Ethan Happ.

MSU was voted as the preseason pick to win the Big Ten regular season with Michigan picked second.  The Spartans won the regular season title last season while the Wolverines won the postseason tournament for the second year in a row.
