Frese on Pfirman: "Tierney is cut from the same cloth as Marissa Coleman and Alyssa Thomas in that she's a big perimeter player that can do damage inside and out. Back in her hometown, she became a local legend really young. She has a lot of potential to be a very good player for us. Now it's our job to challenge her and help her on this journey. I love players that are versatile and can put the ball in the basket. Tierney fits that description. She's got a great opportunity to learn from some terrific teammates and I'm excited about what she can do for us."
