COLLEGE PARK - Students have set off bonfires, tossed bottles, climbed onto business roofs and shot off fireworks in celebrating Maryland's NCAA tournament win over Indiana.

There's one fire burning on Route One and one on Fraternity Row. Firefighters have decided not to move in.

Thousands of students and fans are in the streets. Police hurled tear gas at revelers at the intersection of Route 1 and Knox Road, where students have disrupted police barricades.

One student was cut badly when hit in the head with a bottle, and another was tackled by an ice cream shop employee when he tried to ram a police barricade through the shop's window.

Police, meanwhile, were deployed in force, hoping to avoid a repeat of the violence that followed Saturday's semifinal victory. Police, however, promised to planned to "aggressively arrest" people who refused to disperse.
