SC State’s Riley leaving Bulldogs’ hoops program

ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - South Carolina State is losing a homegrown product from their men's basketball team.

Bulldogs forward Tashombe Riley announced his departure from the program on Monday.

The former Orangeburg-Wilkinson standout signed to play for Murray Garvin and the Bulldogs in November 2013. During his junior campaign, Riley was the team's second-leading scorer averaging 11.4 and pulling down 5.1 rebounds per game during his junior campaign.

He played 98 games for SC State and averaged 9.3 points per game.

The 6-foot-7 Riley did not play for the Bulldogs this past season after suffering a lower leg injury this summer at the SC Pro Am.

He is slated to graduate from SC State on May 11.
