Losing on a buzzer-beater can be tough to handle, but rarely do things turn ugly after the game. Unfortunately for two Illinois high schools, things got out of hand quickly.

In the Belvidere North 4A Regional on Tuesday, Chaz Johnson hit the game-winning shot as time expired to give Jefferson a 51-49 victory over East:

The game ended, but the action was just getting started. At some point in the handshake line, a brawl broke out:

Players, coaches and fans were all over the court as tempers flared. Eventually, order was restored. 

It's unknown who started the fight or why. As of publication time, the brawl was still being investigated.
