Rice men's hoops adds grad transfer Terrance McBride
POSTED: April 2, 2021 -- 6:50 p.m. CT
Rice men's basketball coach Scott Pera announced Tuesday morning the signing of graduate transfer Terrance McBride to a grant-in-aid for the 2021-22 school year.
"I am excited to announce that Cornell graduate transfer Terrance McBride has signed to play for us next year," said Pera. "Terrance had to miss this past season due to the pandemic. He will be a terrific addition to our program. He had a productive career at Cornell and brings a combination of skills to the team. More importantly, Terrance fits our culture perfectly and is here to accomplish the same goal that we all are, winning a conference championship."
McBride, a 6'2" guard, comes to Rice after attending Cornell the last four years where he averaged 7.2 points per game, 2.8 rebounds per game and 2.5 assists per game through his first three years. His senior season was canceled by the Ivy League due to COVID-19.
