She passes. She hits. She blocks. She sets.
And even more notable: She does it all at a fairly new position.
Before the season, the junior from San Diego played primarily as an outside hitter. But the team turned to Underwood in the preseason when it needed a setter to back up starter Eve Rackham.
"On August 7th, we said to her, `You need to become a setter,'" UNC coach Joe Sagula said. "She took that challenge and has gone with it, and that's unbelievable."
Underwood's conversion from outside hitter to setter has proven an extremely timely one, as Rackham, the 2000 ACC assist leader, has been sidelined this season with an ankle injury.
"They needed a backup setter, and there was no backup setter to Eve," Underwood said. "So they trained me, starting this preseason, and just in time, because Eve got hurt.
"I just had to step in and be a setter. Even though I'm an outside hitter, you got to do what you got to do."
What Underwood has done in Rackham's absence is play in consistent fashion. Since taking over the starting job, she has paced the Tar Heels attack with 8.14 assists per game.
On the defensive side, the scrappy Underwood averages 2.51 digs and 0.8 blocks per game.
