Drexel set the record for the biggest comeback in NCAA Division I men's basketball history last night when the Dragons rallied from 34 points down to defeat Delaware, 85-83.
Drexel, of course, was pumped about erasing the 67-year-old NCAA record. The reactions from fans on social media were classic:

Since the Eagles won the Super Bowl, the Flyers are 8-1 and the Sixers are 6-0. And Drexel just pulled off the greatest comeback in NCAA Div 1 hoops, overcoming a 34-point deficit to win. #PhillySpecial— Jeffrey Goldfarb (@jgfarb) February 23, 2018

The "win probability" chart had #bluehens with a virtual lock most of the game. They surrendered the largest NCAA D1 lead ever Thursday at Drexel and lost, 85-83. Their lead was 34 points in the first half, 56-29 at halftime. https://t.co/gRh8MUaOBL pic.twitter.com/b6OB1OiFg9— William Bretzger (@billbretz) February 23, 2018
