This was the scene on State Street last night.
While we were standing at the end of the block we could hear the roar of the crowd when Harrison's shot went in, then when Traevon Jackson's shot missed.
It took less than five minutes for students to rush out to celebrate; people were climbing trees and chanting C-A-T-S CATS CATS CATS...
Police in riot gear lined the sidewalks to make sure things didn't get out of hand.
This isn't the first time many of these students have celebrated, as the Cats won the title just a few years ago, but this one feels more special because of the season these Cats have had.
