Updated as of 4/8/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-0
Weight: 170
College: Maryland
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 10/7/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Tremendous free throw generator
Very good free throw shooter
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder for a player his size
Adequate defensive player
Good athlete

 
Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can be prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Can have lapses defensively
Can struggle to guard bigger players
Undersized to play the point
Overshadowed by a higher profile teammate

 
Summary:

Anthony Cowan is a score-first guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He has solid speed and quickness to play the point, and he also handles the ball well.​

He also is quite active on the glass as well as on the defensive end.  On the downside, he can be too streaky with his jump shot, and he will need to make more outside shots consistently.  Right now, Cowan has not been receiving much buzz right now, but he could be a potential second round pick in the upcoming draft.
