Illinois forward Malcolm Hill was named to the preseason All-Big Ten team Tuesday. The senior is one of 10 players voted onto the team by conference media.

Hill was named to the Second team All-Big Ten last season. During his junior year, he became the first Illini to record 600 points, 200 rebounds and 100 assists in a single season. He was the only Big Ten player to lead his team in points, assists and rebounding that same year.
