FROSTBURG -- Just the way they planned it -- so far. After winning the consolation bracket last year in its inaugural tournament appearance, third-ranked Archbishop Spalding earned the chance last night to play for the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament boys basketball championship and complete a four-year plan. Spalding (25-10) advanced to the 40th Alhambra final with its 10th straight win, 55-43, beating Philadelphia's No. 1-ranked Roman Catholic (24-6). Villanova-bound point guard Derrick Snowden scored 19 points and Isaac Brooks had 12 to lead the Cavaliers, who took a 47-40 lead with four minutes left and were not seriously threatened afterward.
