She delivered again.just like the postal service.  On senior night in Stillwater Wednesday, with the game on the line, the 55 stick of dynamite carried her Cowgirls to yet another win.

The score was tied 57-57 with 8:15 to play.  Riley deals an assist to Lakyn Garrison for a three to make it 60-57.  Then Riley calls her own number for a two and its 62 to 57.   The Cowgirls ride on to a 78 to 70 win.

She will leave as OSUs all-time leader in scoring, 3-pointers made, free throws made and minutes played.  And if basketball had a category for saves, she would lead in that one as well.

The Cowgirls will play OU in Bedlam Saturday and then move on to a Big 12 tournament.  All wins will be appreciated and needed for the Cowgirls NCAA tournament seed.  Riley must sit out the Cowgirls first NCAA tournament game.  The suspension hangs over her head from the 2008 NCAA tournament.

Riley has delivered on so many occasions.  Its time for her teammates deliver one for Riley and win their first-round game no matter the foe.  Who knows what she might deliver after that.
