Eric Riley (born June 2, 1970 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a retired American professional basketball player who was selected by the Dallas Mavericks in the 2nd round (33rd overall) of the 1993 NBA Draft. Riley played for the Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics in five NBA seasons, averaging 3.1 points per game. He was an injured reserve member of the 1993–94 Houston Rockets who won the NBA championship.
Prior to this, he played for Cleveland St. Joseph High School and then collegiately at the University of Michigan. At Michigan, he redshirted on the 1989 NCAA national champion Wolverines team, and then was the sixth man on Michigan's 1991-92 & 1992-93 Fab Five teams that reached the 1992 & 1993 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship final game.
In 1991, as a sophomore, Riley led the entire 1990–91 Michigan team in both rebounding and blocked shots. In fact, Riley was second in the Big Ten Conference in rebounds for the 1990-91 season. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten recognition in 1991. On the Fab Five teams, Riley led all reserve players in points, rebounds and blocks. After being relegated to reserve status following the arrival of the Fab Five, he had the best game of his career in the Southeast Regional semifinals of the 1992 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
His rights were acquired by the Rockets in a pre-1993 NBA Draft trade and they waived him on December 12, 1994. Thus, Riley was a member of the 1993-1994 Houston Rockets when they won their first title under Michigan alumnus Rudy Tomjanovich, though Riley was put on the injured list before the playoffs started. Following his NBA career, he had a long career in Europe.
In 2009 Eric Riley started a non-profit called High Rise Foundation. HRF is a non-profit charity with the mission to mentor young adults through sports programs, sports clinics and academic tutoring.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
