DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — University of Dayton students are becoming known for their rowdy street parties celebrating the latest basketball win — and Thursday night was no exception.
After hundreds of students showed up at UD Arena to watch the Flyers beat Stanford on big screens, thousands thronged the streets around campus to celebrate the team’s first NCAA Elite Eight appearance in three decades.
Police said some bottles and cans were thrown at police in riot gear trying to disperse the dancing and screaming crowds. Dayton police reported 28 arrests on campus.
The Dayton Daily News reports that emergency crews responded to a roof collapse on a porch near campus, but there were no details about injuries.
The Flyers will play the University of Florida in the next round of the tournament on Saturday.
