The Simeon basketball team defeated Stevenson for the school’s fourth consecutive Class 4A state title on Saturday, joining Peoria Manuel (1994-97) as the only two schools to accomplish the feat at the highest level of play in the state of Illinois.

The Wolverines’ 58-40 victory on the court was impressive enough, but it was what the team did after the win that has hoops fans buzzing. Just moments after hoisting the championship trophy into the air, the team returned to the locker room and joined the Internet craze by creating its very own “Harlem Shake” video.

Duke-bound Jabari Parker, future Illinois duo Kendrick Nunn and Jaylon Tate, along with Dayton-bound Kendall Pollard were joined by their teammates to celebrate the team's title in style.
