5 O'Clock Shadow: Klee's All-Big Ten team

News you can't leave work without: On Thursday in Chicago, the Big Ten will announce its preseason men's basketball all-conference team. Here is what beat writer Paul Klee's ballot looked like:

Jared Sullinger*, Ohio State
— Without sniper Jon Diebler firing away, big man won’t see as much one-on-one coverage

Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin
— Ten of the 15 players on All-Big Ten first, second or third teams last season are gone

William Buford, Ohio State
— A Buckeye has been named All-Big Ten six times since 2005 — tops in the conference

Robbie Hummel, Purdue
— For fifth spot, chose the proven super-senior ahead of Michigan rising star Tim Hardaway Jr.

Trevor Mbakwe, Minnesota
— The most recent All-Big Ten selection from Minnesota? Vincent Grier, way back in 2005

* — Big Ten preseason Player of the Year
