Franklin senior Vanessa Agrusa is a combo guard for the Panthers, and versatility has defined her final season of high school basketball.
Agrusa leads the Western North Carolina Athletic Conference team in scoring (18.3 points per game) to go along with some strong averages in assists (7.5), rebounds (5.0) and steals (3.9).
Agrusa’s assists total is the highest for any mountain girls player. The 5-foot-10 standout wears No. 34 for Franklin and was a member of the All-WNCAC team for the 2013-14 season.
The Panthers (7-5, 3-2) are also getting 12.8 points and 4.0 steals a night from sophomore Lexi Taro and have won four of their last five games.
Franklin is home for Friday’s matchup with Tuscola.
