There might be nothing worse than thinking you’ve won a game, celebrating as if you’ve won a game, only to go on and lose.
That is exactly what happened to St. Bonaventure in their match up with Virginia Commonwealth University.
With 3.2 seconds left and the Bonnies trailing the Rams 65-63 in the second half, St. Bonaventure guard Matt Mobley caught the pass from Jaylen Adams and sank it for three.

Some fans and members of the team thought the successful shot was a buzzer-beater and swarmed the floor in celebration.
However, they were sadly mistaken. The clock still had 0.4 seconds remaining, so the team received a technical foul. VCU guard JeQuan Lewis made the ensuing free throw, sending the game into overtime.
The Rams ultimately reclaimed the lead, winning 83-77. What. A. Nightmare.
