Not many people had a better Thanksgiving week than Maryland Terrapin's point guard Anthony Cowan.
The senior guard led the Terps to a 3-0 record at the Orlando Invitational, scoring 20 or more points in each contest. He notched a career-high 30 points in a victory over Harvard and was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
On Monday, he earned two more awards for his sensational three-game stretch: NCAA Player of the Week and co-Big Ten Player of the Week.

Cowan shares the Big Ten Player of the Week award with Michigan's Jon Teske. It marked the first time Cowan has earned the weekly honor.
In the three victories, Cowan averaged 24.0 points, 4.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 51 percent from the field and a stunning 45 percent from three-point distance.
His Maryland squad has risen to No. 3 in the Associated Press ranking. The Terps' next test comes at home on Wednesday when they host the 6-1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
