Police are on State Street with pepperball guns that they will shoot at crowds if conditions become dangerous. When the pepperball guns explode, they release a powder.

State Street is currently closed, and police and fire officials are on the scene.

Bars in the 300 block of South Limestone were crowded for at least four hours prior to tip-off. The game started after 6 p.m.

The corner of Woodland and Euclid avenues will close following the end of the UK-Louisville Final Four game.
