Bridges, Winston, Jackson Jr. earn Big Ten All-Conference honors
Sophomores standouts Miles Bridges and Cassius Winston and freshman Jaren Jackson Jr. were selected to the Big Ten men's basketball All-Conference teams that were announced late Monday.
The awards, as well as the All-Big Ten teams, were voted on by conference coaches and a select media panel.
Jackson Jr. took home a pair of individual awards and won Big Ten Freshman of the Year and the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
Jackson Jr., along with Winston, was selected to the All-Conference third team by both the coaches and the media, while Bridges was a unanimous selection to the first team.
Bridges averages 16.8 points per game along with 6.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists and shoots 46.6 percent on field goals. The native of Flint, Michigan is No. 1 in the Big Ten in free-throw shooting with 89.8 percent.
Winston averages 12.5 points per contest and dishes out 6.9 helpers per contest. Winston ranks No. 1 in the conference in assists per game, assists percentage and true shooting percentage.
Jackson Jr. turns away just more than three shots per game to go with his 11.4 points per game average. The freshman has already totaled 100 blocks on the year and surpassed MSU's single-season blocks record earlier this season.
Sophomore forward Nick Ward was not selected to any of the All-Conference teams by the coaches, but was voted on to the All-Big Ten third team by the media.
Senior guard Lourawls "Tum Tum" Nairn Jr. was also one of 14 Big Ten Sportsmanship Award honorees.
