Colby Lee's 21 points and 10 rebounds helped the unranked Institute of Notre Dame girls' basketball team shock No. 1 and host Spalding, 49-41, yesterday.

The win is the Indians' first over the Cavaliers (14-5, 9-2 IAAM A Division) in 10 years.

"We've had some tough losses this year. This shows our team that we can play with the best," IND coach Herb Hoelter said. "Colby is the kind of player that can dominate a game ... They just didn't have an answer for her."

Lee, who scored 10 of her 21 points in the fourth quarter, sparked an 8-0 run to put the Indians (9-7, 2-4) up by six. Spalding cut it to three with just under three minutes left on three-point shooting from Katie Latonick (team-high 11 points).

IND answered with solid free-throw shooting down the stretch.
