One of the key traits of all national championship basketball teams is the ability to win games it otherwise has no business competing in. Off-nights happen all the time. But how teams play through them are what matters.

In that case, consider No. 3 Maryland’s 59-58 victory over Illinois in the Big Ten season opener a statement of an arrival. The Terps aren’t messing around — or more specifically, Anthony Cowan Jr isn’t.

Cowan scores 30, No. 5 Maryland rallies to beat Temple 76-69

  Cowan scores 30, No. 5 Maryland rallies to beat Temple 76-69 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Anthony Cowan Jr. scored five of his career-high 30 points in the final three minutes, helping No. 5 Maryland overcome a slow start and beat Temple 76-69 in the opening game of the Orlando Invitational on Thursday. Eric Ayala had 13 points and Jalen Smith finished with 12 points and nine rebounds for the Terrapins (6-0), who trailed by as many as nine in the first half. Cowan put them ahead for good with a long 3-pointer and added two free throws in the closing seconds for a five-point lead.Ayala also came up big down the stretch with a 3-pointer, two free throws and a driving layup in the final 1:53.

Anthony Cowan Jr . (1) finished with a game-high 18 points in the victory. He mixed in midrange jumpers with circus finishes at the rim, but the rest of Maryland 's guards had no rhythm. Cowan added a pair of three -pointers within the first six minutes of the half, and Cekovsky pulled Maryland to

MD . ILL. No Text. Cowan leads Maryland past Illinois 92-91 in overtime. STATS AP. Leron Black led Illinois (6- 3 , 1-1 Big Ten ), while Mark Alstork scored 17 and Aaron Jordan added 15. Maryland held a commanding 45-26 lead at the half, led by Cowan 's 16 points, nine from outside the 3 -point line.

BOX SCORE: NO. 3 MARYLAND 59, ILLINOIS 58

Cowan led all scorers with 20 points to go with seven rebounds and six assists but it was a sequence with less than a minute remaining that will earn him praise from his coaches.

With the Terps trailing 58-55, Cowan took the ball at mid-court, used one dribble and launched a 3-pointer that was ill-advised until it wasn’t.

His encore was even more clutch. On the ensuing Illinois possession, Cowan swept in behind Andres Feliz and stole the ball from the senior guard. Feliz, trying to win the ball back, ended up fouling Cowan and put him on the line with 2.1 seconds left to play. Cowan made the first to give Maryland its first lead since it went up 3-2. He missed the second — his only miss at the line all night — allowing the clock to start without enough time for Illinois to get a shot off.

Second-half surge carries No. 5 Maryland over Harvard 80-73

  Second-half surge carries No. 5 Maryland over Harvard 80-73 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Anthony Cowan Jr. scored 17 of his 20 points in the second half to help No. 5 Maryland overcome another slow start to remain unbeaten with an 80-73 victory over Harvard in the semifinals of the Orlando Invitational on Friday. Cowan followed up on a 30-point performance in the previous day’s come-from-behind win over Temple with 10 points and an assist during a 12-4 burst that sparked a game-closing surge by the Terrapins (7-0), who have won seven straight to begin a season for the first time in three years.

Maryland basketball looked impressive in its Big Ten opener against Illinois Tuesday night, winning 84- 59 at Xfinity Center. Tight defense and efficient scoring combined with woeful Illinois shooting kept the Terps comfortably ahead. As has been customary, Melo Trimble led the Terps in points with

The Terps trailed by 15 to open the second half. Cowan made that irrelevant and kept his team undefeated and atop the rankings.

For the Illini, what was about to become coach Brad Underwood’s biggest victory just over two years into his tenure came crashing down in familiar fashion.

Nearly a month ago, Illinois was on the road getting ready to put No. 21 Arizona on the ropes when it fell apart. Down by just one possession with 12 minutes to play, the Illini couldn’t stop turning the ball over (22 times total) and ended up getting blown out in the last 10 minutes to the tune of 90-69.

Underwood lamented his team’s ability to protect the ball at the time and he’ll likely feel the same after Saturday night. Illinois turned the ball over 13 times against the Terps — none more damaging than Feliz’s in the final minute.

Fortunately for the Illini, they’ll have another chance to slay a top program when they host No. 4 Michigan on Wednesday.

However, Marquette's all-time scoring leader was just 1 of 12 from the field in this one, including 0 for 6 on 3-point attempts, after scorching Davidson for 40 points in the opening round and topping 50 for the third in his career with 51 against Southern California in the semifinals.

Justin Jackson and Anthony Cowan were a combined 0-for-7 from the field in the first half, while Penn State is closer to the bottom of the Big Ten than the top, and Maryland was favored by two Maryland ’s offensive output was noticeably poor. The Nittany Lions were able to silence Melo Trimble
