Junior point guard JJ Hones took a while to get into the groove last season, but once she did the groove was a deep and sure one. Hones finished up with a sterling 2.6:1 assist-to-turnover ratio and a blossoming offensive game as one of the Card's key outside threats. Hones is even more ready to get the ball where it needs to go, whether to a teammate or into the basket, this season.
