As a sophomore in 1990-91, Holland and his teammates, coached by newly-appointed coach Mike Jarvis, narrowly missed winning the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament championship (losing at Penn State in the finals), but earned a berth in the National Invitation Tournament and finished the season 19-12. That season he was named the team's MVP and earned second team All-Atlantic 10 Conference honors.
Two years later, Holland captained the Colonials to a 21-9 campaign, which included a a pair of NCAA Tournament victories (over New Mexico and Southern at Tucson, Ariz.) and a "Sweet 16" matchup against eventual NCAA finalist Michigan and its talented--but tainted--"Fab Five" at Seattle's Kingdome.
Holland, who played five seasons of pro ball in Europe and South America ('93-98), finished his playing career in 1998 and took a job with the Boys and Girls Club of America as Director of Operations in Paterson, N.J. Two years later, he joined the Charles Hayden Foundation, a New York-based charitable organization which focuses on youth groups in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts, as its Community Development Officer.
In 2001, Holland was selected to the 23-player GW All-Century Men's Basketball Team. Now 32, Sonni and his wife, the former Halene DeHart, reside in Piscataway, N.J., with their infant daughter, Janeva.
