Tiondra Hands Named Third-Team All-GNAC

WINTHROP, Mass. – While she might not be tall in stature, Tiondra Hands loomed large during her two seasons with the Johnson & Wales University women's basketball team. She was rewarded for her efforts this year with a spot on the All-GNAC Third-Team as announced by the conference office on Monday.

It's the first all-conference honor for the Boynton Beach, Fla. native. She is the first Wildcat to garner postseason accolades since Raquel Pederzani in 2017-18.

This season she ranked 12th in the GNAC at 13.0 points per game as well as fifth in three-pointers (48), eighth in steals (52) and ninth in assists (80). Hands had 22 games with 10 or more points, topped by 23 versus Thomas. She recorded her first collegiate double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds against Salve Regina.

Hands joined the Wildcats after two seasons at CCRI. She finished her career 10th in school history at 9.8 points ppg, while her 2.6 assists per game is seventh. She cracked the single-season list this year with her 48 three-pointers.

Johnson & Wales finished the year with a 13-13 record and advanced to the GNAC Tournament. Head coach Kim Dweck will have to replace three senior starters, including Hands.
