The pressure of being perfect.
Top-ranked Big Sandy, 14-0 overall, stands alone in the District 9-C with an unmarred record.
Big Sandy, who has not played a game for two weeks, is led by sophomore Amy Silvan.
Silvan matched a season-high 27 points against Box Elder as the Pioneers went on to an 88-28 swamping over the defending Class C state champions.
Silvan nailed four 3-pointers in the contest.
However, the Pioneers have placed eight different girls in double figures this season.
Junior Celeste Darlington tallied 19 points in the last matchup, while senior Tiffanie Jamieson added 14, and senior Sasha Ritter chipped in 12, including two 3-pointers.
Junior Kristi Upham, sophomore Kathryn Bitz, junior Eryn Darlington and junior Jillian Johnsrud have also reached double figures more than once this season.
The KG KouGars, 9-2 in conference play and 11-3 overall, are No. 2 in the district.
Jen Siefert, Amy Melby and Kim Berg help lead the way for the KouGars.
The KouGars were handed a 57-44 loss by 10-C leader Chester on Sept. 24. One week later, the KouGars were upset by non-conference Geraldine and, the following night, were downed 58-50 by Big Sandy.
The KouGars face Chester Friday at home.
Box Elder, the only other team with a winning record, has a 6-5 conference record.
