Cal Ripken Jr. congratulates Terps' Anthony Cowan Jr. on becoming the latest 'Iron Man'

Cal Ripken Jr. congratulates Terps' Anthony Cowan Jr. on becoming the latest 'Iron Man'

Anthony Cowan Jr.'s time at the University of Maryland has been filled with big buckets in clutch moments. But above all else, Cowan has been one thing for the Terps: consistent.

On Wednesday night, for Maryland's thrilling last-second win over Minnesota, Cowan started his 127th consecutive game. Now a senior, Cowan has never missed a game in his Maryland career. The start on Wednesday allowed him to pass Keith Booth for the most consecutive starts in school history.

An impressive feat, Cowan is now the Terps' "Iron Man."

Among all the congratulations, Cowan received a special one from one of the all-time Iron Men: Cal Ripken Jr. The former Orioles shortstop, who played in a record 2,632 straight games, sent a message to Cowan welcoming him to a special group.

The Hall of Famer, who has been in attendance at Maryland games in the past, said the best part about being an Iron Man is that you're someone everyone can rely on. He sees a lot of that in the Maryland guard.

"I wanted you to know that we can all count on you," Ripken Jr. said. "Keep things rolling and good luck in March."

If Maryland wants to make a deep run in March, it'll need Cowan to continue to be consistent. The good thing for the Terps is that he knows no other way.
