KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 24 (UPI) -- Tyrone Garland scored with 2.5 seconds left Sunday, lifting 13th-seeded La Salle to a 76-74 win over Mississippi and into an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 berth.

Garland's lay-in past defender Reginald Buckner as time wound down handed the Explorers (24-9) their first trip to the NCAA regional semifinals since 1955.

Garland finished with 17 points and Ramon Galloway drained six 3-pointers en route to a game-high 24 points.

Tyreek Duren added 19 points for the winners, who advance to play ninth-ranked Wichita State in West Regional Thursday at Los Angeles.

Marshall Henderson led the 12th-seeded Rebels (27-9) with 21 points.
