College basketball season is right around the corner, and on Monday, a Maryland men’s basketball player was noted as a player to watch this year.

Entering his final season in College Park, Anthony Cowan Jr. was named a candidate for the 2019-2020 Bob Cousy Award, which is given to the best point guard in college basketball annually. He is one of 20 players on the watch list.

Cowan is coming a junior campaign in which he averaged 15.6 points, 4.4 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game while shooting 39.3 percent from the floor and 33.7 percent from long distance. While impressive, all of those numbers are actually down from his sophomore season, though not by much.

After the 2018-2019 concluded with a second-round exit in the NCAA Tournament at the hands of LSU, Cowan put his name in the draft pool and was evaluated by NBA scouts. As expected, he withdrew from draft consideration to return to Maryland for his senior season, and he’s expected to be the team’s leader once again.
