STILL PHOTO OF STUDENTS CELEBRATING AROUND BONFIRE STORY: Police in Lubbock, Texas, used tear gas early Sunday (April 7) morning to break up a throng of Texas Tech students celebrating the basketball team's berth in the NCAA Tournament final, according to multiple reports.

Students gathered in the street and reportedly overturned at least one car and burned rental scooters and a couch.

The university issued a statement decrying the actions of the students.

"After the Texas Tech Men's Basketball team defeated Michigan State in a NCAA Championship Final Four game, hundreds of fans gathered on Broadway, near University.

The crowd engaged in extremely dangerous, and disappointing, behavior including vandalizing property.

We are proud, and excited, for Texas Tech, but behavior like this will not be tolerated.

We want Red Raider fans to support the team and celebrate lawfully and responsibly.

We are on the national stage so make Lubbock proud," the statement read.

Texas Tech defeated Michigan State 61-51 Saturday night in one national semifinal.

The Red Raiders will meet Virginia on Monday (April 8) night in the NCAA title game in Minneapolis.
