Angry basketball fans outside the University of Arizona late Saturday night. Hundreds of them spilled into the streets when their school's team lost its NCAA tournament game to the University of Wisconsin by just one point. A number of fans, it's not clear how many, went on a rampage and Tucson police had to go in with riot gear. The crowd threw beer bottles and firecrackers at police, who fired back with pepper spray. Fifteen people were arrested, three of them suffered minor injuries, say police. No officers were injured in the melee and police are talking to university officials to figure out if any of those arrested were students.
