With the 2019 Big Ten men’s basketball media day taking place on Wednesday, the conference released their preseason honorees as selected by the media. Michigan State senior guard Cassius Winston is the league’s preseason Player of the Years, and is one of three unanimous all-conference honorees.
Joining Winston with a unanimous selection from the media are Maryland senior guard Anthony Cowan Jr. and Ohio State junior forward Kaleb Wesson. After exploring the NBA by entering the draft process following last season, the younger of Ohio State’s two Wesson brothers is back looking to improve on his 14.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game average in 2018-19.
In his team media day press conference last week, Buckeye head coach Chris Holtmann talked about how Wesson is in the best shape of his collegiate career and will be looking to improve on his past successes. Wesson was the only Buckeye on the list.
