It was a familiar scene for Lexington Police and Firefighters early Tuesday morning as crowds filled the streets near the UK Campus.

Police anticipated potential problems in the city, regardless of the outcome of the National Championship game in Arlington, Texas.

UK fell to Connecticut 60-54.

The city said the post-game celebrations were significantly smaller than previous games.

Firefighters had responded to 12 couch fires and 15 trash fires as of about 12:15 a.m.

Several people were reportedly treated for injuries.

Police said officers would let the crowds thin out throughout the morning, provided there were not reports of life-threatening problems.
