It wasn't her speed. She still claims to have a sluggish acceleration rate followed by a constant speedy pace. And the change had little to do with the Justin Timberlake tunes she pops in the CD player in preparation for most of North Carolina's games.
Instead, the junior forward has noticed a shift in her mobility, putting her where she needs to be at the optimal moment.
"And because of that, I think I'm getting the ball more often, which is giving me the opportunity to make more things happen," Ramsey said. "I don't know. I don't think it was just a switch that one day I decided to turn on. About the time we played Wake Forest, right before the ACC Tournament, is about when it happened.
"Ever since then, I've just continued doing it. I don't know where it came from, but I'm glad I decided to become more mobile because obviously things are starting to happen."
In NCAA Tournament play alone this season, Ramsey has scored three goals and had two assists. Her 17 goals lead the team, while her 12 assists place second, just behind Susan Bush and Lindsay Tarpley, both of whom are tied at 15.
Last week was no different for Ramsey, and at the close of UNC's quarterfinal match against Texas A&M on Friday the junior had earned two goals and one assist. Her goals lifted the Tar Heels to a Final Four game against Santa Clara.
After that matchup, the lights dimmed on Fetzer Field and a few of the Tar Heels lingered, socializing with friends and family.
Senior Leslie Gaston jokingly bumped into Ramsey, calling the 5-foot-9 forward a bully.
