“Chance Riley is an important addition to our program,” Ottawa coach Andy Carrier said. “He can play in the post and on the perimeter. Chance is a skilled shooter and passer that is also very strong and tough. His versatility will be a huge asset to our team. More importantly, Chance is a good student that will provide immediate leadership both on and off the court.”
