    Does "rallies from 16 points down" mean "keeps 16 points higher than the rival until"

    Does "rallies from 16 points down to" mean "keeps 16 points higher than the rival until"?

    Context:


    WKU rallies from 16 points down to beat MVSU in NCAA opener

    "Rallies" here means that WKU found the fighting spirit to bounce back from a 16 point deficit.

    Yes, thank you.

    I got it when having completed reading the report:

    The only team with a losing record in the NCAA tournament got it started with a classic March comeback — in front of a presidential audience, no less. T.J. Price's three-point play with 33 seconds to go completed the Hilltoppers' rally from a 16-point deficit over the last 5 minutes for a 59-58 victory over Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday night.
