LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- University of Kentucky fans poured into the streets in Lexington to celebrate the Wildcat's NCAA tournament win over Michigan, but police say the crowds were mostly well-behaved.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports police did not go out of their way to make arrests, even for small fires that were set on State Street where students traditionally gather after big wins.

Fires were extinguished as quickly as they started, and officers were patrolling State Street and the surrounding areas.

After the Wildcats' 75-72 win, crowds spilled out of college bars and onto Limestone Street, which police quickly closed to traffic.

The team returned to their campus home from Indianapolis Sunday night to about 100 screaming fans, who were being held back by yellow caution tape.
