January 24, 2004|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Justin Castleberry's driving layup with 10 seconds left in overtime gave third-ranked Archbishop Spalding a 57-56 win over visiting and No. 16 Calvert Hall yesterday.

Castleberry's layup came 11 seconds after Calvert Hall senior center Maurice Martin hit a free throw to give the Cardinals (13-7, 2-6 Baltimore Catholic League/MIAA A Conference) a 56-55 lead. The Cavaliers (16-3, 7-1) overcame the absence of senior Rudy Gay, who fouled out less than three minutes into the extra session. Calvert Hall's Ricky Harris missed a 12-footer as time expired.

Gay finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and seven blocks, but he missed a potential game-winner at the end of regulation.

No. 1 Mount St. Joseph 54, St. Maria Goretti 45: The top-ranked Gaels (17-1) held off Goretti to remain unbeaten in the Baltimore Catholic League. Host Goretti cut the deficit to five with less than four minutes to play, but Mount St. Joseph preserved the lead from the free-throw line. Brian Johnson and Will Thomas led Mount St. Joseph with 12 points each.

McDonogh 55, No. 12 Towson Catholic 46: DuJuan Summers scored 16 points and the visiting Eagles (9-9) upset the Owls (14-7). Carroll Mitchell led Towson Catholic with 15.


No 17 Severn 52, Friends 49: Senior Sarah Meisenberg scored her 1,000th career point among her game-high 22 to boost the visiting Admirals (15-1).
