  • NU’s Scott Eatherton rebounds with new body

    Boston Herald - 12/02/2013

    The Scott Eatherton who has become one of the more efficient rebounders in college basketball was not the same person just a few years ago. Not according to the coach who knows him best.

    That 6-foot-9, 220-pound frame on Northeastern’s power forward, the one who held his own against Florida State and Georgetown in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off to earn CAA Player of the Week honors, did not exist. Instead, there was a growing high school freshman learning how to adapt to a body that was pulling in different directions as he ran down the court.

    “It was like when you see a baby horse trying to run where their legs are kind of awkward and they don’t really know what they are doing,” said Tim Bean, Eatherton’s coach at Hershey High in Pennsylvania. “He was that kid.”

    That kid is now in a distinguished class through the first month of the basketball season. Eatherton’s five double-doubles over NU’s first seven games place him among the top-10 nationally in that category.
