Arizona Wildcats fans are not taking losing very well.  

Tucson, Arizona police say at least ten people were arrested Saturday night following the Wildcats' loss to Wisconsin in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.  

Officers say several hundred people blocked a road on the University of Arizona campus and refused to leave when ordered by police. Some members of the crowd then threw rocks, bottles and other objects at police.  

Police in riot gear used pepper balls and canisters to disperse the crowd. The people arrested were charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly. 

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.
