The Jason Kelce Effect: Did he speak to Drexel, too?

Call it the Jason Kelce Effect.

Suddenly, Philly teams can't lose.

Since the Eagles won the Super Bowl, the Flyers are Sixers are a combined 14-0-1. The Flyers have won four straight. Last night they rallied with two third-period goals to beat Columbus in South Philly.

Meanwhile, the Sixers were out in Milwaukee. They struggled, but got two late free throws from Ben Simmons to seal the win.

That's six straight wins for the 76ers.

Simmons had a career-high 32 points; Joel Embiid knocked down 30 points and 13 rebounds.

And yet, none of this was the highlight of the night.

Didn't come from the Olympics either.

So what was the top highlight? Would you believe Drexel? Well, you might now believe what they did.

They set an NCAA men's hoops record.

They trailed Delaware 53-19 at one point in last night's game. That's 34 points down.

And they rallied for the win.

It's the largest deficit ever overcome in NCAA Division 1 men's basketball.

Did Jason Kelce speak to them, too?
