Hollingsworth earned many post-season honors last season, including NEWMAC player of the year, 1st team All-NEWMAC, 1st team All-Northeast region (D3hoops), 1st team All-Northeast district (NABC), 1st team All-New England (ECAC), 2nd team All-American (NABC), honarable mention All-American (DIII News), and NEWMAC Academic All-Conference.

In addition to Hollingsworth's individual award, MIT was listed as a "possible breakthrough" team for 2010-2011.
