UConn Students Mimic Team's Bench Celebration in Front of Cops

The scene above, which includes a mob of college students wildly screaming in front of a bunch of small fires might lead one to believe this was a riot, but no, this was merely a joyous gathering in front of cops (who actually seemed to get a kick out of it).

These particular students got their inspiration from the bench celebration that the team has been utilizing throughout the tournament.
