Unranked Institute of Notre Dame scored the biggest upset of the season in girls basketball last night when it knocked off No. 7 Dunbar, 52-37.

The host Indians (6-7) used a dominating inside game and tough defense to stall the area's hottest offense. Dunbar (6-3), the defending Baltimore City and state Class 2A champs, had scored more than 100 points four times this season.

Sophomore center Colby Lee scored 16 and had 14 rebounds for the Indians while freshman point guard Shadae Swan added 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.

"We beat them inside. We really controlled the boards," said IND coach Herb Hoelter, whose team had 45 rebounds.

The Poets, who never caught up after falling behind 13-10 in the first quarter, pulled within seven in the fourth, but IND's Katie Hoelter and Rachel Thomas hit back-to-back three-pointers to snuff out the comeback attempt.
