A pair of West Virginia Mountaineers commits showed off their talents in the Scott Brown All-Star Classic last night. The all-star festivities, which feature both a 3-point and slam dunk contest, were won by Jordan McCabe and Trey Doomes. The pair of ballers committed to play for Mountaineer head coach Bob Huggins and if the skills they showed last night were any indication, 2018-19 and beyond looks extremely bright.

Most Mountaineer fans know McCabe. He is an extremely talented ball-handler and has been featured countless times on YouTube. One of his more famous exploits was the time he played around with the Harlem Globetrotters when he was only 12 years old.

McCabe lit up the three-point contest, knocking down 18 of 25 in the first round to advance to the finals. In the finals he hit another 18, giving him 36-of-50 (72%) in the contest for the win. McCabe went on to score 19 points and dish out 7 assists in the all-star game.

Not to be outdone, Trey Doomes took matters into his own hands and won the slam dunk contest, thanks in part to an assist from McCabe. Standing in the upper section, McCabe tossed the ball perfectly for Doomes to throw down a monsterous one-handed jam. Once the game got started, Doomes notched 21 points and 7 rebounds. The pair of commits were named co-MVPs of the all-star contest.

According to the Gazette Mail, Doomes and McCabe showed off chemistry on the court, hooking up multiple times for assisted dunks.

Doomes, a 6-3 combo guard, threw down a thunderous fast-break dunk during the first half as EIN took a 45-28 lead. But that was just a warmup for a few moments later when he took McCabe’s perfectly placed alley-oop feed from halfcourt for another slam to make it 55-34. The same two hooked up for another alley-oop from about 30 feet out with three minutes left.

Perhaps McCabe’s best moment came midway into the second half as nearly all the players on both teams were flying down the floor following a defensive rebound by Mid-State. McCabe picked off an outlet pass at the top of the key, and instead of dashing in for an uncontested layup, he waited right where he was and knocked down a 3-pointer.
