Arrests were made in Schenectady late Saturday and early Sunday when Union College students took to the streets to celebrate the school's NCAA hockey title.
The web site of Albany television station WNYT reported: "Hundreds of students flooded a city street, and several people were arrested, after the Union College men’s hockey team defeated Minnesota in the National Championship Game on Saturday. Police shut down a block of Union Avenue between Union Street and Gillespie Street as the crowd swarmed outside several off-campus houses. Many of the students were carrying open containers of beer. Some were throwing the containers at police."

After the outcry over a University of North Dakota committee voting to eliminate continuing to play without a nickname, the school's president said he'll reconsider adding that option when a vote is taken.
