At least 30 people were arrested Monday night as riots swept the UConn campus following the Huskies' NCAA Championship win over Kentucky.

A mass of students set fires in the streets, hung from street signs, climbed trees, lit firecrackers, flipped cars, and even threw a light post through the window of an IT building, CBS Connecticut reported.

"A lot of [the arrests were] alcohol-related," University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen told the local station. "There was breach of peace, destruction of property, and we had a fireworks charge."

The Huskies beat Kentucky 60-54 to claim UConn's fourth NCAA title in 15 years.
