Season highlights: A season ago, Wright emerged as one of Broward County's top young players and this year, she took on an increased leadership role for the defending state champion Panthers. Her athleticism and size made her a dominant inside presence for Dillard and she averaged 14.0 points and 9.4 rebounds, helping lead Dillard to a third consecutive Class 5A title.
Comment: As consistent a player as she is all season, Wright has an ability to play well when her team needs her the most. She had a game-high 21 points and 10 rebounds in Dillard's 59-45 win over Bartram Trail in the state championship game and had 19 points and 19 rebounds in last year's state title game. Several Big East programs have expressed interest.
Athlete's quote: "Next year for myself, I'd like to work on being more versatile and not having the guards have to worry about bringing the ball up themselves all the time. I want to be an all-around player and work on my 3-point shot. I also think it'd be great to win a 'four-peat.' That would be special. To win four state titles in high school would be amazing."Copyright © 2015, CT Now
