(CNN) -- Police in Tucson, Arizona, arrested 16 people Saturday night after rowdy crowds threw bottles, beer cans and firecrackers at officers following the Wildcats' overtime loss to Wisconsin. Wisconsin beat Arizona 64-63 on Saturday night and earned a spot in the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Arizona was the No. 1 seed in the West Region and Wisconsin the No. 2 seed. About 20 minutes after the game ended, several hundred people blocked a road on the University of Arizona campus, said Sgt. Pete Dugan. When they refused officers' orders to disperse and began lobbing objects, police used pepper balls and canisters, Dugan said. Police reported some damage to property. Those arrested were charged with resisting arrest, unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct.
