Riller was named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Co-Rookie of the Week Nov. 14. The Ocoee native came off the bench to score 21 points in 24 minutes for the Cougars in their season opener Nov. 11 against The Citadel — a 81-68 victory. The dynamic guard went 6-for-9 from the floor and made all nine of his free throw attempts in his collegiate debut.

Through four games this season, Riller is averaging 10.5 points per game off the bench in a little under 20 minutes per game for the Cougars (3-1).

Riller missed the entire 2015-16 season due to an ACL-injury and this was his collegiate debut.
