Eighteen people were arrested in Lexington in celebrations around campus after the University of Kentucky beat Notre Dame to advance to the Final Four, city officials said Sunday.
Most of the arrests were for intoxication or disorderly conduct and occurred in the State Street area, where about 2,000 people had gathered after the Cats' 68-66 win on Saturday night.
Eight people were taken to the hospital for treatment of alcohol intoxication and facial lacerations. One person was knocked unconscious.
There were no life-threatening injuries reported.
Never miss a local story.
Susan Straub, a spokeswoman for Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, said no major fires were reported. She said the celebration did not require a significant cleanup effort.
Straub said Saturday night's celebration was calmer than in past years, and that translated into a safer celebration.
"We want people to celebrate," she said, "just do it safely."
