Kansas is known for having one of college basketball’s most passionate fan bases, and that passion showed late Monday night and into early Tuesday morning after the Jayhawks defeated North Carolina 72-69 national championship game. Although thousands of KU faithful traveled to New Orleans to see the game in person, many stayed behind to celebrate on and near the KU campus in Lawrence, Kansas.

After the final buzzer of the program’s fourth national title sounded, scenes emerged that showed what appeared to be utter chaos on downtown streets near the Kansas campus. In a scene captured by KSHB’s Megan Abundis, a crowd surfer sitting in a shopping cart was led through a crowd of cheering fans.

The epicenter of the excitement appeared to be Massachusetts Street, a busy downtown thoroughfare lined with restaurants and shops. Even after midnight in the central time zone, scenes showing crowds crammed with firecrackers continued to emerge.

There was even excitement at the Allen Fieldhouse, where thousands gathered to watch the game on the arena’s video board. But that celebration seemed tame compared to what was happening on the streets as the Jayhawks’ faithful celebrated their first title since 2008.
