Arizona Wildcats fans are not taking losing very well.  Tucson, Arizona police say 15 people were arrested Saturday night following the Wildcats' loss to Wisconsin in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.  Nine of them are University of Arizona students.

Officers say several hundred people blocked a road on campus and refused to leave.  Some members of the crowd then threw rocks, bottles and other objects at officers.  Police in riot gear used pepper balls and canisters to disperse the crowd. Arizona lost to Wisconsin 64-63 in overtime.  Arizona entered the game as the number-one seed in the West Region, while Wisconsin was seeded number two.
