Teaira McCowan gender: Is Teaira McCowan male or female?
The basketball player is a female and was named WBCA All-American, ESPNW First Team All-American, and the Associated Press Third Team All-American. McCowan was also the inaugural Naismith Defensive Player of the Year Award winner.
McCowan was the projected first overall pick in the 2019 WNBA draft in an ESPN mock draft. However, this mock draft included only college seniors and eligible international players. Later that month, ESPN compiled another mock draft, including draft-eligible juniors, the most notable of whom was Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu.
McCowan was projected as third, but with the caveat that “if Ionescu decides to stay and play her senior season at Oregon, the whole first round looks different. This qualification proved relevant as Ionescu announced that she would remain in Oregon for 2019–20.
