2020-21 was McCabe’s third season as a Mountaineer. 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. He averaged 2.2 points and 1.4 assists in 28 games, including five starts. He played 10.9 minutes per game.
McCabe was one of three primary ball-handlers for WVU this season. The others were McBride and junior college transfer Kedrian Johnson. There are also two incoming freshmen guards signed in WVU’s 2021 recruiting class, Seth Wilson and Kobe Johnson.
With the NCAA’s eligibility waiver for this season, McCabe could have as many as two seasons of eligibility remaining.
