The No. 7 Archbishop Spalding boys basketball team advanced to the championship game of the Bullis Holiday Tournament yesterday in Potomac with a 62-59 win over Virginia's Notre Dame Academy.

Marquis Sullivan led all scorers with 21 points, and Justin Castleberry and Daniel Palumbo made clutch free throws in the final minute to lift the Cavaliers (8-1).

Pat Behan led Notre Dame Academy with 18 points.

Down 16-3 in the first quarter, the Cavaliers came back behind Sullivan's 13 second-quarter points to take a 36-33 halftime lead.

Today's final will match Spalding against National Christian Academy of Fort Washington, a team Spalding beat by two points earlier this season.

No. 5 Walbrook 73, Edison Friendship (D.C.) 38: The visiting Warriors (5-0) took an 11-0 lead and didn't look back.

Towson-bound senior Velmar Coleman sparked the run by hitting a three-pointer on his first attempt and getting a steal and going the length of the court for the dunk.

DeShawn Willis led Edison Friendship (4-2) with nine points.

Calvert Hall 50, Hill School (Pa.) 42: Senior guard Ricky Harris led the Cardinals (8-2) with 23 points in the semifinals of the Hill School Tournament in Pottstown, Pa.
