The moral of today's story is simple kids: Don't celebrate like you've won the State Title Basketball game until you've actually won the game.

Those words came back to haunt Burrville High School in Rhode Island this weekend. With just 4 seconds left to play, Burrville steals the ball and appears to dribble down court and throw the ball high in the air to celebrate winning the title.

Unfortunately, a player for their opponent Chariho caught the ball with one second left on the clock and called timeout.

And yes, you guessed it...Chariho's  Jacob Beauregard makes the perfect inbounds lob pass to Tom Longolucco who catches it and lays it in. Game over. Chariho wins.

And the obligatory chaos ensues....
