LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Patrick Behan scored 22 points and Justin Castleberry had 20 to lead Bucknell to a come-from-behind 81-75 victory over Drexel on Saturday.

Bryan Cohen contributed 16 points for Bucknell (3-6). Scott Rodgers scored 24 points and Gerald Colds had 21 for Drexel (2-5).

The Dragons led 35-27 at the break and increased that to 38-27 as Rodgers opened the second half with a 3-pointer. But Bucknell then went on a 15-4 run -- with six points from Castleberry and five from Cohen -- to tie the score at 42 with 14:45 remaining.

The teams battled for the lead the rest of the way until Darryl Shazier's layup put Bucknell ahead for good 73-71 with 1:30 remaining, and the Bison finished the game with an 8-4 run to seal the win.
