Duke has a lot of records but one of the oldest is for the biggest NCAA comeback that was set in 1950 - and broken this week by Drexel.

The Dragons had a 34 point comeback Thursday night against Delaware which, by any measure, is incredible.

We’re not sure if Dick Groat was on the varsity in 1950 - looks like he was actually - well he’s 87 now.

That’s a long time for any record. Congratulations to Drexel for an amazing game.
