The race for the No. 1 player in 2014
At most high schools, sophomore point guard Anthony Cowan would already be the star of the show. That's not the case at loaded Washington (D.C.) St. John's and Cowan is perfectly fine with that.
A 5-foot-10 floor general with quickness and skill, Cowan comes off the bench for a loaded team where nobody cares much about personal accolades.
"We just want to win," Cowan told Rivals.com. "That's what this group is about and that's all that we are about. We just want to play as a team as hard as we can every time we step on the floor."
After all, Cowan loves the opportunity to learn from 2014 Rivals150 guards James Palmer and Tre Campbell who are headed to Miami and Georgetown.
"I learn little things like coming off the pick and roll," said Cowan. "I learn leaderhship and I get much better going against them one on one in practice everyday."
Though he isn't the biggest point guard around, Cowan is unafraid of physical play. He wants to hit the weight room when the season is over but has a good handle on his game.
"My strength is getting down the lane and being able to dish and score," said Cowan. "My role right now is to come off the bench and bring intensity and defense. I need to get better at making my open jump shots, distributing more and you can always improve on defense."
Cowan has already earned high-level scholarship offers from Maryland, Xavier and Depaul. Interest has also come in from the likes of Cincinnati, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Florida State. Just as he's been patient with playing time and a starring role at St. John's, Cowan will be patient with his recruitment.
"I'm not in any rush to do anything in terms of college," said Cowan. "I want to stick out these high school years and then sit down and make a decision with my family when it's time."
