UConn Students Riot After Men’s Basketball Team Wins National Championship (Pics + Videos)

UConn riot

Well here’s some shocking news. Last night, after the UConn Huskies men’s basketball team won the 2014 NCAA National Championship, drunk college kids poured out into the streets of Storr, Connecticut, and laid waste to cars, street signs, and lamp posts.

Who could have expected that?

Oh right. Everybody.

Anyway, yes, UConn students went apeshit after the Huskies beat Kentucky last night. As soon as the final buzzer sounded, students lit fireworks, overturned furniture in campus buildings, tore down street lamps, and trashed cars. Campus police arrested over 30 students, and state police arrested an unspecified number as well.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported, and property damage is relatively minor.

Behold the chaos:
