KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second time of his career, College of Charleston’s Grant Riller (Orlando, Fla.) was honored on the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 10 First Team on Monday.
The three-time All-Colonial Athletic Association First Team selection Riller closed out his illustrious career for the Cougars ranked second all-time in career scoring with 2,474 points, which was also third-most in conference history behind former NBA All-Star David Robinson of Navy and Charles Jenkins of Hofstra.
In 2019-20, he finished ranked No. 10 in the nation in scoring averaging a team-and league-best 21.9 points per game. Riller became the first CofC player to record a triple-double in program history recording 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists versus Northeastern on Jan. 16, 2020 at TD Arena.
The eight-time CAA Player of the Week honoree also left his mark in the school record books – first all-time in career 30-point games (14), eighth all-time in career steals (165) and 13th all-time in career assists (366). He is the program’s NCAA Division I Era single-game scoring record holder (43 points) and played in 132 career games with 125 career starts.
In 2017-18, he helped lead the Cougars to a CAA regular-season and tournament title and the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth since 1999. Riller was named CAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player.
About the National Association of Basketball Coaches

All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today’s student-athletes.
