Tom Gola Arena, Philadelphia, PA
PHILADELPHIA -- Tyrone Garland and Ramon Galloway hopped on the scorer's table, stretched their arms in celebration, and took in the mayhem. Out on the court, their La Salle teammates were lost somewhere in a swarm of gold-shirted students that made Gola Arena its own mosh pit.The Explorers had knocked off mighty Butler, and a decade of mediocre basketball was forgotten in a flash.Out of timeouts, Galloway sprinted the length of the court for the winning basket with 2.7 seconds left to send La Salle to a 54-53 victory over No. 9 Butler on Wednesday night.
