Frese on Leslie: “We’re really excited about what we’ve seen from Kiara early on. She has some terrific qualities and as she grows, she can really make an impact on the court for us. She’s a very powerful player. She missed her senior year of high school, so we’re working on getting her up to speed. I think she’ll get there, but we have to be patient.”
