He also got worse as his career went on.

Should have played football.

Senior Year Eric May: 5.2 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.8 APG
Freshman McCabe: 5.8 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 0.8 APG

Zach McCabe then also had a great Freshman year.
You're wrong on this one. May was great his senior year for the role he took on. He was huge second half of the year and the key when they made it to the NIT finals.

May would have looked better with a #82 and a helmet on.

Those highlights included a game against Stoney brook and all three games against a NW team that finished second to last in the conference

He had four games where he didn’t score and 7 games with two points.

He may have played his role well down the stretch his senior year but we can’t pretend he was great the whole year

Stony Brook was damn good that year and had an NBA level forward.

He was good the 2nd half of the year and down the stretch. He also had a shit back and was injured for a long time and that killed his development.

Since you used win shares earlier:

May Senior Year: 3.1
McCabe Frosh Year: 0.8

McCabe's best year was his junior season (2.2).

But I would take May because his senior season was so much better than what McCabe brought at any point.

May was all around better than McCabe but I also agree he should have played football. Much higher ceiling.

Both sucked. But, May could at least defend. I would take May just for that. McCabe was an oozing sore in every phase of the game.

The 2012-2013 team was one of Fran's best, perhaps better than a couple of his NCAA tournament teams. Zach McCabe is directly responsible for being a fucktard on that team.
One of my favorite Fran teams. Lost a ton of close games. Don't remember a whole lot of games they got blown out in other than Baylor.
