She also hit 49 3-pointers and scored in double figures 12 times. She finished the season ranked first in the Jayhawk Conference and 28th in the NJCAA in assists per game average. She also ranked fourth in the conference in assist-to-turnover ratio. Her 159 total assists on the season rank eighth on JCCC’s season chart.

Hollingsworth averaged 12.0 points and 2.0 assists at the National Tournament. She began tournament play by scoring a team-high 16 points to lead JCCC to a 58-36 win over St. Louis Community College. She also 18 points and five assists in a 100-92 win over Harcum in the third round.

Hollingsworth helped the team to 62-8 record over her campaigns, place fifth at nationals in 2010-11, and win a conference title with a perfect 18-0 mark in 2011-12.

Tanchelle was another in a long line of really good points guards we have had here,” Conrad said. “She was the floor general for two national tournament teams and is another natural to get into coaching.”
