Pandemonium is defined as a very noisy place or a very wild uproar or noise, but on Saturday night Whitewater vs. Sandy Creek was the definition of pandemonium. What many people on both sides thought would be a complete Sandy Creek blowout were pleasantly surprised to see a high scoring shootout filled with many big plays. Throughout the game both the Wildcats and Patriots showed the crowd how a high school basketball game is supposed to be played, with high energy, a lot of heart and emotion, and where certain players step up and lead their teams.
