Anthony Cowan Jr. is set to make history for Maryland men’s basketball Wednesday night.
The senior guard will start his 127th consecutive game when the Terps face Minnesota in Minneapolis at 9 p.m. ET, breaking the program record for consecutive starts set by Keith Booth (126) from 1993-97.
“To be in the same sentence as someone like Keith Booth, it’s huge,” Cowan said Tuesday. “And just to have the opportunity Coach [Mark Turgeon] gave me getting me to play so early and be able start so many games, it’s definitely a blessing.”
Since coming to campus in 2016, Cowan’s name has been called in opening introductions in every single contest. And he’s averaged 33.7 minutes per game throughout his career on top of that, which ranks third all-time.
While this will be the first accolade that puts the Bowie, Maryland, native solely at the top of the leaderboard, he has continued to make his mark on the program record books all season.
Cowan is currently eighth in scoring with 1,819 career points, fifth in assists (554) and tied for third in three-pointers made (303). He is also 15 made free-throws away from having the most in program history.
