Mar 23, 2014 12:12pm

The city of Dayton couldn’t contain its excitement following the university’s upset win against Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament, propelling them to the Sweet 16.

Dayton defeated the Orange 55-53 on Saturday, which was followed by equally impressive celebrations, during which the university’s president, Daniel Curran, held true to the Flyers’ name by surfing a crowd of raucous fans.

Curran reportedly rode high on the shoulders of students as they chanted his name repeatedly before carrying him down.

But victory celebrations were cut short when riot police arrived amid reports of fires and smoke.
