TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police say they shot pepper spray at several hundred fans who took to the streets and threw beer bottles and firecrackers at officers after the University of Arizona basketball team's overtime loss in the NCAA tournament.
Tucson police Sgt. Pete Dugan says there were no immediate reports of injuries to fans or officers, but nine to 10 people were arrested. He says the street is secured.
He says crowds leaving bars and restaurants near campus after the game filled University Boulevard and wouldn't disperse after urging through a PA system and social media.
Dugan says flying beer bottles and firecrackers, hitting cruisers and endangering officers.
A witness, David Kitaeff, told The Associated Press that police were marching down University Boulevard.
Arizona lost 64-63 to Wisconsin in the West Region final Saturday in Anaheim, Calif.
