Rudy Gay had 31 points, 13 rebounds and five blocked shots as No. 2 Archbishop Spalding won the consolation championship game for fifth place, 77-70, over DeMatha in the 44th Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament last night at Frostburg State University.

"Rudy had a super game and we went on a 16-5 run in the last three minutes to pull it out," said Spalding coach Mike Glick.

"It was a great win and finish [2-1] in the tournament."

Marquis Sullivan chipped in 22 points, and point guard Jesse Brooks had eight assists for the Cavaliers (29-8). Sophomore guard Nigel Munson led DeMatha (19-11) with 22 points.

In the other consolation game, Will Thomas scored 28 points and had 13 rebounds to pace top-ranked Mount St. Joseph to a 78-53 rout of Bishop Walsh (18-15) of Cumberland.

Thomas scored 74 points for the Gaels (29-6) in three games at the Alhambra to finish his three-year varsity career with a school-record 1,631 points.
