VIDEO OF THE DAY: Victory denied

This coach reacts after losing on a last-minute, full-court shot.

This coach reacts after losing on a last-minute, full-court shot.

It's a miracle ending. Down by two, a basketball team travels down the court, and hits a three with .6 seconds left on the clock to lift them over their rivals by 1 point.

Naturally, a celebration ensues. Player's go wild, coaches run out onto the court and fans are either stunned or ecstatic depending on how they're rooting for.

But as the team is celebrating what they believe to be a last-minute, thrilling victory, members of the opposite team quietly throw the ball in-bounds and toss up a last-ditch effort for the victory.

They nail it.

Suddenly, the image of victory on a coaches faces dissolves into disbelief, his arms outstretched as if to say, "Wait, what? What just happened?"

That is Great! Chalk it up to a lesson learned! Although, Yogi warned everyone 50-60 years ago....It ain't over till it's over

Gotta pay to the buzzer. That said, I'm not fully convinced this is legit, nor that you can get a more than half court shot off in .6 seconds. There is never a camera angle where you can see the player and the hoop throughout the entire shot.

they've determined (i don't know who THEY are) that a ball can be caught AND shot in .3 seconds. but you're right, there's not a camera angle that shows the clock and ball release. I just thought it was great.....the look on that coach's face is absolutely priceless
