This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Senior guard Anthony Cowan Jr. continued to make his mark on the Maryland men’s basketball record books Tuesday night against Fairfield.

With his 12-point performance, Cowan passed James Gist as the 20th all-time leading scorer in program history — he now has 1,424 points on his career as a Terp.

The guard hit three shots from beyond the arc in the contest, the second of which pushed him past Walt Williams for the 11th most made three-pointers in program history at 155. He now has 156 made as a Terp.

With lots more basketball left to be played this season, Cowan will without a doubt continue to move up the ranks. He is now 13 points away from passing Jake Layman for No. 19 on the scoring list, as well as 21 more deep shots from passing Drew Nichols to become 10th on the all-time three-pointers made list.

The senior is currently averaging 12.3 points per game this season, and if he continues on that pace through the regular season alone, he could slot himself as the 11th highest scorer in program history.
