PHILADELPHIA (AP) Meghan Creighton hit a career-high seven 3-pointers – including the winner with nine seconds left – and Drexel rallied from a five-point deficit with 1:23 left to beat No. 11 Syracuse 62-61 on Monday night.
It was Drexel's first win over a ranked team since beating No. 25 James Madison on Jan. 3, 2010.
Creighton scored a career-best 23 points, Sarah Curran added 14 and Bailey Greenberg scored 10 for the Dragons (3-1).
Kelsi Lidge stole it from Sykes, who was called for a technical foul and Creighton made both free throws to trim Drexel's deficit to 57-53 with 1:57 remaining.
With Syracuse up five, the Dragons had back-to-back offensive rebounds before Greenberg's layup made it 60-57 50 seconds later. Briana Day was called for offensive foul and Curran's layup pulled the Dragons within one.
Syracuse's Alexis Peterson made 1 of 2 free throws with 18 seconds to play and then Lidge found Creighton for the winner.
Sykes led the Orange with 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting.
