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.

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.
