Arizona Fans, Students Riot in Tucson After Elite Eight Loss

Last night, the no. 1 seed Arizona Wildcats lost in overtime to Wisconsin. It was a disappointing end for the Pac 12 champions and long time regular season no. 1 team in the country.

Some perspective from an outside observer may suggest that Arizona still has a winner of a head coach. It is Sean Miller's second terminal Elite Eight appearance in five years as a head coach at Arizona. It is also his third overall dating back to his days as Thad Matta's replacement at Xavier.

However, that perspective was insufficient for the Arizona fans in Tucson that took the streets to express their displeasure with the basketball season ending. It got rather ugly too.

Here is a sample from the Daily Wildcat.

In this social media era, the world is watching almost immediately.

Of course, there's always the all too important riot selfie for posterity's sake.
