Bowers, the Cavaliers' 7-foot center who is headed to the University of Maryland, also had seven rebounds and three blocked shots. "The difference in the game was the second period when we outscored them 22-9 and had an 11-0 run to end the first half," said Spalding coach Mike Glick, whose team also had a 19-for-27 advantage from the foul line. St. Lambert (15-3) was 6-for-10 . "Having an eight-point lead [32-24] to start the second half meant a lot," Glick said.
