Indiana was chosen as the top team in the Big Ten and the Hoosiers' Cody Zeller was selected as the Preseason Player of the Year in a vote by conference media.

With all five starters back from a team that went 27-9 and reached the Sweet 16, expectations are soaring for the Hoosiers.

A big reason for that is the 6-foot-11 Zeller, who averaged 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds as a freshman last season. He was a unanimous pick for the preseason all-conference team, with Michigan's Trey Burke, Ohio State's Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas, and Penn State's Tim Frazier also making it.

Michigan and Ohio State were picked to finish second and third, respectively, after sharing the regular-season title with Michigan State last season.
