The Franklin girls basketball team promised a return to its traditional uptempo style this season.
That style was the difference Friday night, as the Grizzly Cubs used pressure defense and a fast-paced offense to thump visiting Greensburg 69-39 in the season-opener.
Franklin struggled in the opening minutes, turning the ball over five times, and trailed 13-8 with 3:00 to play in the first quarter. The Cubs settled down and quickly took control of the game. Tara Parmer hit a short jumper that kicked off a 19-0 run that stretched over the next 7:53 of play.
