    Actually, it's "Alley-Oop".

    Well, it's used in Basketball for one thing...it's a play in which a pass is lobbed above the basket and a player jumps up and attempts to catch the ball and score before returning to the floor.

    It's history goes back to the French "allez" an alteration of allez-oop, which is the cry of a circus acrobat about to leap.

    Could be used simply when we attempt to throw something (or someone) into the air.
