Some more college news: Cardinal basketball's wounded women's trio, Part I: JJ Hones
As the Stanford women’s basketball team goes through its three days of preparation for its Sept. 4 trip to Italy, three key players are able to do little during practice as they recover from injuries. All three – JJ Hones, Jayne Appel and Sarah Boothe – will accompany the team on its 11-day visit to Italy, but none of them will play in the four games. Their goal is to be ready for the 2009-2010 season, and all three seem to be on target.

The status of each will be presented in three articles, starting today with Hones, whose battered left knee is a critical factor in the Cardinal’s 2009-2010 season.
