All it took for the La Salle Explorers to become the talk of the entire world was a simple answer to a question from the funky-suit-wearing Craig Sager. What do you call that final shot that propelled your team into the Sweet 16?
"That's the Southwest Philly Floater," Tyrone Garland answered.
Both "Southwest Philly Floater" and "Tyrone Garland" became worldwide trending topics on Twitter within minutes.
Sadly, Cousin Vern Bern -- who also received a shoutout from the smiley kid who hit the game winner -- never made it it to the trending levels.
In case you live under a rock, Garland hit the game winner with just seconds left to help the Explorers beat Ole Miss 76-74. (recap)
You'll be able to pickup your "Southwest Philly Floater" t-shirts tomorrow from your local street salesman.
Congratulations to the La Salle Explorers on their magical run over the past week. They're the only team to win three games in the NCAA tournament this week and they're still dancing.
