Riley was a member of the MCC Women’s Basketball team from 2000 to 2002, where she was the all-time leading scorer until 2019. She is now currently second with 940 career points. McDonald holds several men’s basketball records at MCC, including all-time leading men’s scorer, with 1,283 points from 1970-1972, and all-time leading rebounds in a season with 501.
The first team to be inducted into the Hall of Fame is the 1987-1988 MCC Women’s Basketball team.
