Four years ago, two college basketball players from major programs decided to transfer. Each was recruited by UNLV and San Diego State.
Patrick McCaw made great use of his first start. When UNLV staggered out of the gates, McCaw quickly asserted himself and got his teammates going. It wasn’t enough as the Rebels wore down in a 53-47 loss at San Diego State, but McCaw certainly wasn’t the problem.
A sizzling start by freshman guard Patrick McCaw provided the spark UNLV needed. For a while, he carried his team. At the finish line, when he needed help, it was nowhere to be found.
