As No. 12 Maryland basketball continues its 13-2 season, the spotlight is on its senior point guard Anthony Cowan Jr, who cracked the midseason Wooden Award watch list Thursday.
Cowan, who is averaging 16.7 points, 4.13 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game, was a unanimous Preseason All-Big Ten selection and was named the ninth ranked player in the country by ESPN.
Five other Big Ten representatives were named to the midseason list, including Iowa big man Luke Garza, who Maryland is scheduled to play Friday night.
Cassius Winston (Michigan State), Kaleb Wesson (Ohio State), Lamar Stevens (Penn State) and Zavier Simpson (Michigan) round off the four other Big Ten standouts on the watch list.
