McCabe entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal just two days following the end of WVU’s season last Tuesday. 2020-21 was McCabe’s third season as a Mountaineer. He averaged 2.2 points and 1.4 assists in 28 games, including five starts. He played 10.9 minutes per game.
As a freshman out of Kaukauna, Wisconsin in 2018-19, McCabe started the season on the bench, becoming a starter in the second half of the year. He averaged a career-best 5.8 points and 2.5 assists in 35 games, starting 15. He also averaged a career-high 18.5 minutes.
He saw his role decrease in 2019-20 with the emergence of then-freshman Miles “Deuce” McBride, while also struggling through a season-long shooting slump. McCabe played just 13.5 minutes per game in 31 games, 29 starts, and averaging 3.1 points and 1.6 assists. He shot 31.1% from the floor and 20.9% from deep. His role decreased even more this season as McBride replaced him in the starting lineup.
UNLV finished with a 12-15 record this season, 8-10 in Mountain West conference play. With the NCAA’s blanket eligibility waiver for this season, McCabe could have as many as two seasons of eligibility remaining.
