March 12, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

No. 2 Archbishop Spalding shook off the malaise of not playing a game in two weeks and beat St. John's (D.C.), 61-47, in the opening round of the Bishop Walsh Invitational in Cumberland on Thursday.

"We fell behind 11-2 and just turned up our defensive pressure," Spalding coach Bookie Rosemond said. "We haven't played a game in weeks. I think the long layoff caught up with us."

Raven Makins led the Cavaliers (10-4) with 16 points. Camille Calhoun added 12 and Shaquila Curtis had 11 for Spalding, which advances to tonight's semifinal against Prince George's County opponent Bishop McNamara at 7:15. No. 1 St. Frances plays No. 6 Seton Keough at 5:30 p.m.

Spalding scored 21 points in both the second and third quarters.

Mariah Jones led all scorers with 23 points for the Cadets.
