UK fans react to NCAA loss in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Perry Schaible) -- Kentucky fans are waking up to deal with a tough loss in the NCAA Tournament.

Six points separated the national champion UConn Huskies from the Kentucky Wildcats. Some say this was a game of men against boys. Kentucky started five freshmen. The final score was 60 to 54.
Tough loss for fans. They reacted by hitting the streets of Lexington. Police and university officials say crowds were mostly well behaved and much calmer than after Saturday's win in the Final Four. "I'm just sad. It was a great game. It really was. I can't be upset, man, we played our hardest.  I'm not gonna be mad at UConn they did what they could, and I hope next year we can come back and bring the victory to Kentucky."

There are reports of seventeen couch fires and fifteen trash fires in the State Street area.    Fourteen people were reportedly hurt as of two a.m. Tuesday morning.

One person was hit by a train near campus. The victim's condition has not been released. But officials say most of the injuries around campus were not serious.
