Frese on Slocum: “Destiny was born to be a leader. She is genuinely concerned and connected to other people. She has endless energy and is always bouncing around with a smile. She sees the floor very well. I’ve coached some really good point guards and her leadership qualities are as good as any I’ve seen.”
