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.
