Shante Evans can add one more thing to her lengthy list of accomplishments.

A first team All-CAA selection for the third time, Evans led Hofstra in scoring (16.1) and rebounding (11.5). Evans is the CAA's all-time leading rebounder with 1,348 and had the most double-doubles (69) of any active Division I player.
Evans, who led the Pride to two WNIT appearances, has scored in double figures in 28 of Hofstra's 29 regular season games and notched a double-double in 35 of her last 52 career games.
Named to both the John R. Wooden Award and Naismith Trophy watch lists, Evans is the Pride’s all-time leader in points (2,116).
