Wildcats living up to their name...

Dozens of irate basketball fans were arrested at a college game after the Kentucky Wildcats lost to the Wisconsin Badgers in the final four NCAA clash.

Kentucky came into the game as the first men’s team to have a 38-0 record, but fans didn’t react well to their side losing 71-64. It means that Wisconsin, and not the fancied Wildcats, will face the Duke Blue Devils in tomorrow’s championship title game.

According to media reports, at least three were injured and around 30 were arrested during the riotous behaviour that followed the surprise loss. Misbehaving fans face charges including public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
