Galloway sends La Salle past No. 9 Butler

PHILADELPHIA — Ramon Galloway went 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.

Fans stormed the court in a wild celebration for the biggest win for La Salle (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic 10) in 33 years. There was some confusion after Galloway's basket and fans were ordered off the court. Butler had attempted a last-second heave that was way off the mark. Officials huddled with both coaches and they decided the final score stood. It was mayhem again as fans rushed the court for the second time in minutes.

Let them celebrate twice: La Salle hadn't defeated a top 10 team since 1980.

Butler had lived on last-second victories this season, including a buzzer-beater Saturday against Gonzaga. Just not at La Salle.
