COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – Anthony Cowan Jr. hit a pivotal 3-pointer with 44 seconds left, and No. 19 Maryland edged Wisconsin 64-60 Monday night after blowing a 21-point lead in the second half.
Maryland (15-3, 6-1) led by 10 after eight minutes and 38-17 with 17:47 remaining before the Badgers (11-6, 3-3) roared back to take a 60-59 lead with 2:01 to go.
Cowan turned it around with his long-range jumper, and the Terps held on after Wisconsin’s Nate Reuvers missed two 3-pointers in the final 33 seconds.
Despite making only four of 14 shots, Cowan scored 21 points on the strength of 11-for-13 free-throw shooting.
Wisconsin scored only 15 points in the first half on 7-for-26 shooting and was 0 for 10 from 3-point range before Reuvers ended the drought with 17:29 remaining.
Reuvers scored a career-high 18 for Wisconsin. Happ finished with 10, half his season average.
