The Big Ten will unveil its preseason men's basketball poll at media day Thursday in New York.  The league's media gave a glimpse of the big expectations for Michigan State this season.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Spartans were a unanimous choice to win the conference title this year by a panel of 28 reporters who cover the Big Ten and participated in the unofficial poll.

Sophomore forward Miles Bridges was the unanimous choice for player of the year, and newcomer Jaren Jackson Jr. fell one vote shy of being the unanimous pick for conference freshman of the year.
