Win or lose, Lexington Police said they were ready for anything to happen in downtown Lexington Saturday night.

Officers said they kept Limestone open until four minutes before the end of the Kentucky – Wisconsin Final Four game.

ABC 36 crews outside of Tin Roof said the bars were crammed around the windows and railings.

Tin Roof security workers said they hit capacity hours before the game even started.

It wasn’t just UK students out at the bars Saturday night.

Some people said they just wanted to be near campus for the post game celebration. Others said they wanted to relive what happened in 2012, when UK won the National Championship.
