Syracuse's Tyler Lydon loses shoe, still makes 3

It's not so hard to hoop in socks.

Who needs two shoes to play basketball? Not Syracuse's Tyler Lydon.

Lydon lost his shoe -- unceremoniously whipped out of bounds by Orange teammate Michael Gbinije -- and still ended up drilling a three late in the first half of Syracuse's Elite Eight matchup with Virginia.

Virginia's in control of the game, up 35-21 at halftime. But Lydon is now in the company of NBA champions Mike Miller and Andre Iguodala. He's absolutely a shoo-in for "One Shining Moment."
