Kevin Ramey has no doubt his Rogers Heritage girls basketball team is better with Ashley Ward on the floor. The tangible contributions are easy to see as the 5-foot-8 senior leads Heritage in scoring (12.2 points per game) and rebounding (5.7 rebounds per game). But Ramey said those are only the tip of the iceberg.
