This time, it was Spalding's turn.

This time, it was the No. 5-ranked Cavaliers who brought the overwhelming talent and depth.

With their typical balance on offense and a dominating performance on the boards, the Cavaliers were able to keep a safe distance throughout against visiting St. Mary's, walking off with a comfortable 55-38 win in Severn.

The last time Spalding came away with a win against county rival St. Mary's was at the Noel Classic in 1993. The Saints' string of 16 straight regular-season wins against Spalding came to an end with the Cavaliers' victory last night.

"This one was nice -- we've never beaten St. Mary's since I've been here," said senior co-captain Lauren Schaech.

Schaech led the way with 11 points -- including two timely three-pointers in the second and third quarters. Altig, Kylie Bestul and Leslie Juengst each provided 10 points for the Cavaliers.
