Police arrested 15 unruly fans and shot pepper spray at crowds after Arizona's overtime loss to Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament. Authorities who arrived on the scene were met with flying beer bottles, cans and firecrackers from the crowd

Tuscon police arrested 15 people and used pepper spray on rowdy fans following the Arizona Wildcats’ NCAA tournament loss, police said.

Arizona lost in overtime to the Wisconsin Badgers 64-63 in the West Region final Saturday in Anaheim. Crowds leaving Tuscon bars and restaurants after watching their team’s narrow defeat didn’t disperse from the area despite police orders to do so, the Associated Press reports.

Police cruisers and baton-wielding officers that arrived on the scene were soon met with flying beer bottles, cans and firecrackers from the crowd.

Of the 15 people arrested in the fracas, 14 have been released.

A group backed by Warren Buffett planned to hand out $1 billion for a perfect bracket but Friday's upsets eliminated all contestants. However, the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket is still offering $100,000 each to the top twenty performing brackets

It’s over already.

The group offering $1 billion for the perfect March Madness bracket said late Friday that no potential winners remain after two major upsets busted almost every submitted bracket.

The contest by Quicken Loans, backed by Warren Buffet, said that 99 percent of brackets were eliminated on Friday after Dayton beat Ohio State and Mercer beat Duke in the college basketball tournament.

The final three brackets were eliminated after only 25 games when Memphis defeated George Washington Friday evening, the Associated Press reports.

The Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket is still offering $100,000 each to the top twenty performing brackets.

“That’s still a heck of a payday for filing out a bracket,” Jay Farmer, president and chief marketing officer of Quicken Loans, said in a statement.
