Bowers 16-Points & Brackney’s bench spark lead Cavs 12/27/2002 Senior Will Bowers scored 10 of his game-high 16-points in the final quarter, as #4 Archbishop Spalding limited Georgetown Prep, ranked #20 in Washington, to only one field goal in the final seven minutes and rallied to a 45-40 victory, in the first round of the Slam Dunk at the Beach tournament in Lewes, Delaware. The Cavaliers will now move on to face Cardinal Dougherty of the Philadelphia Catholic League on Saturday at 8:00 pm, in the semifinals. Trailing 38-33 following a three-pointer by Georgetown Prep senior guard Pat Coyle, Spalding’s Tim Brackney made a layup and Bowers, a 7-foot center, followed with a three-pointer - just the third in his career - to tie the game at 38. He also hit a trey last week to send the Cavs to overtime, in a game they eventually won, against Eleanor Roosevelt. Spalding (7-1) took the lead for good when junior guard Rudy Gay converted two free throws with 3:42 left, and extended its lead to 42-38 when Bowers added two more free throws with 52-seconds remaining. Brackney, a senior guard, scored eight points off the bench to spark the Cavs and Gay scored six.
