MADISON - A big party could be brewing in Madison tonight, and police are trying to make sure they're ready.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that police are anticipating big crowds after tonight's Final Four game featuring Wisconsin and Kentucky.

More than 10,000 Badgers fans took to the streets of Madison after Wisconsin's Elite Eight win over Arizona. About 50 officers helped keep order during that party. No one was cited and there were only a few minor injuries.

Police expect crowds at least that big should Wisconsin win tonight.
