In a chance to showcase his skills before Big East play starts and the rotation tightens, Riley showed he's still transitioning to the college game. The center scored two points in 14 minutes in Syracuse's 75-51 win over St. Francis Sunday at the Carrier Dome. Riley showed signs of promise, while also struggling at times, in his brief stint.
