Riley-Smith is averaging 13.3 points
Riley-Smith, averaging 13.3 points, asked for a release from his scholarship this week. He said his decision had nothing to do with coach Ed DeChellis or the program.
"I feel like I need a change," Riley-Smith said. "This is not a good fit for me as far as the environment goes."
The Nittany Lions (5-5) play their final nonconference game of the season Saturday at home against Bucknell.
