COACH ROMAR ON CHARLES FREDERICK
"He's very fast. Guys that play football and have football backgrounds usually are pretty tough on the basketball court. They ususally have quick feet and are good defenders. I like that. I think Charles just needs to play and get a lot of reps. He didn't have that last year because he played football and then he didn't get to play a lot when he came out for basketball."
