Drexel set the men's Division I record for a comeback win Thursday, overcoming a 34-point first-half deficit to beat Delaware 85-83.

Delaware led 53-19 with 2:36 remaining in the first half and was up 56-29 at halftime.

"Our approach at halftime was, let's make it happen," Drexel head coach Zach Spiker told ESPN by phone after the game. "Look, this has a chance to be the craziest comeback, a perfect storm. We turned it over, we came out soft. The opposite happened in the second half."

"They shot almost perfect from the 3-point line," Drexel guard Tramaine Isabell said. "He told us it could happen the exact opposite way."

Drexel began the second half on an 18-4 run, then went on a 17-4 run after Delaware had pushed the lead back to 16 midway through the second half.

"We try to get bricks, which is three straight stops," Isabell said. "Those started coming to us, in bunches. [The coaches] just kept screaming at us at timeouts, whatever the run was. 17-2, 8-0. After you hear that a couple times, you [start thinking], 'We were just down 25 points seven minutes ago, maybe this is possible,' and we just made history."
