The Seymour native netted 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting along with six assists while playing all 40 minutes in a 75-62 victory over St. Catharine. Two days later the senior guard kept her team in the game against No. 7 Campbellsville, tying a career-high with six 3-pointers and making 9-of-13 shots total in the contest. Cowan finished with 28 points and four rebounds versus the Tigers in a 70-66 loss and is now averaging 23.8 points in CU's four conference outings this season.

She is shooting 49 percent (25-of-51) from 3-point range over the last eight games, scoring in double figures in all eight outings while averaging 18.8 points per contest.

Cumberland, ranked 22nd nationally and 7-5 overall, will head to Bluefield and Pikeville for Mid-South Conference action this weekend.
