  • What has it been like for Frese to recruit from home?
  • Is there a certain point in a players’ career when Frese realizes they have the talent for the WNBA?
  • What does Frese instill in the program, in terms of player development, to allow players to be so successful in the WNBA?
  • What has Frese told WNBA teams about her seniors making the jump to the next level?
  • What has it been like for Frese to see the women’s side of the game develop and grow?
