Anthony Cowan Jr. passes Keith Booth for most consecutive starts in Maryland history

Anthony Cowan Jr. passes Keith Booth for most consecutive starts in Maryland history

Anthony Cowan Jr. set a Maryland record Wednesday night against Minnesota when he started his 127th straight game.

Cowan breaks former Terp Keith Booth's record that has remained untouched since 1997.

“It’s huge, to be in the same sentence as someone like Keith Booth is huge,” Cowan told reporters Tuesday after the team’s practice. “Just the opportunity coach [Mark Turgeon] gave me to play so early and start so many games, it’s a blessing.”

The Terps defeated the Golden Gophers in dramatic fashion after falling behind by more than 15. 

Down two points with less than ten seconds remaining in regulation, Darryl Morsell squared up from deep and put the Terps on top by one.

The Terps gain momentum in a huge road win and will look to build on it against Michigan State on Saturday night at College Park.

Sa'eed Nelson becomes American University's all-time leading scorer

Sa'eed Nelson becomes American University's all-time leading scorer

Sa'eed Nelson has cemented his name as the American Eagles' all-time leading scorer after passing Russell "Boo' Bowers during the first quarter of the team's matchup against Lafayette (17-10, 9-7) on Wednesday night at Bender Arena.

Bowers' (1977-81) untouched record has stood for nearly 40 years in the nation's capital.

Eagles coach Mike Brennan is hopeful that his senior guard can lead the program (14-13, 10-6 Patriot) to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2014. 

Nelson moved into fourth place in Patriot League history in total career points on Saturday night after passing Mike Muscala (Bucknell) and Tim Kempton (Lehigh) on the all-time list.

“I’ve just been enjoying the moment,” said Nelson, who has started every game he has played in during his American career. “This only comes around once in a lifetime. I just take it day-by-day and enjoy it, while at the same time, just keep playing my game.” 

Nelson trails only Tucker Neale (Colgate), Rob Feaster (Holy Cross), and current Portland Trailblazers star C.J. McCollum (Lehigh) in conference history for the Patriot League scoring title.

Nelson joins Eric Floyd (Georgetown), Chris Monroe (George Washington), and James Daniel (Howard) as the leading scorers of Washington's four Division-I men's basketball programs.

Nelson's big night for the Eagles during their final regular-season home game could help the team's seeding during the conference tournament if they are able to upset Layfayette, which has won the last seven series matchups.
