'Southwest Philly Floater' has resurgent La Salle soaring into the round of 16

Tyrone Garland calls it the "Southwest Philly Floater."

Just a little scoop layup crafted on the Philadelphia playgrounds and perfected in Kansas City.

Garland's shot with the catchy nickname has the La Salle Explorers floating all the way to the NCAA tournament's round of 16. The Explorers haven't been this far in the tournament in five decades. May as well stick around and see how far the fun lasts.

The Explorers are playing ninth-seeded Wichita State on Thursday night in Los Angeles. The Shockers took out top-seeded Gonzaga to form this unlikely pairing in the West Regional.
