Wisconsin-Milwaukee vs Northeastern

Eatherton, Northeastern overcome Milwaukee 62-59


  •  

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Scott Eatherton scored 20 points, including Northeastern's final nine, and the Huskies stormed back from a 19-point halftime deficit to defeat Milwaukee 62-59 on Saturday night.

A basket by Zach Stahl gave Northeastern its first lead, 53-52, with 2:58 left. A four-point play by Milwaukee's Jordan Aaron had the Panthers up 59-58 with 36.5 seconds left. But Eatherton hit two free throws with 18.6 seconds left, and after an Aaron miss and a steal by Stahl, Eatherton made two more free throws with 7 seconds remaining. A final 3-point try by Aaron was short.

Northeastern (3-8), which has played a rugged nonconference schedule, had lost six straight coming into Saturday's game at the Westin Holiday Classic at Tulane.

Eatherton grabbed 11 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double and ninth of the season.

The Panthers (9-4) had four players score in double figures led by Aaron with 14 points.
