Eatherton, Northeastern defeat Charleston 60-44
Question of the Day
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Scott Eatherton had 22 points and 10 rebounds for his NCAA-best 17th double-double of the season in Northeastern’s 60-44 victory at College of Charleston Saturday night.
Eatherton was 9 of 13 overall and 3 of 3 from 3-point range as Northeastern (9-18, 6-7 Colonial Athletic Association) held an opponent to the fewest points since a 58-42 win against Old Dominion on Jan. 24, 2009.
Reggie Spencer scored 15 and David Walker 10 for NU.
Reserves, Joe Chealey and Canyon Barry scored 11 and 10, respectively, but none of Charleston’s (13-14, 5-7) starters reached double figures.
Northeastern jumped ahead 13-2 and led 22-18 at halftime. The Huskies extended to an eight-point lead early in the second and scored 11 straight points to go ahead 47-31 on David Walker’s dunk with 5:42 to go.
From there, Northeastern held Charleston back by making 7 of 10 free throws in the final 3 minutes.
