TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Fans of all ages arrived at Main Gate Square on Friday, hours before the University of Arizona squared off against the Oregon Ducks.

Many said they wanted to arrive early to make sure they were able to score a spot in time for tip off at 7 p.m.

Fans were rooting for a win and looking to get some revenge, after the Wildcats lost to the Ducks earlier this season.

"We usually get off to a slow start but I'm thinking we're going to pull away. We have a lot of ambition after that loss at home and I'm thinking we're going to pull away easy with all the guys we have this year," said Jeff Katter, a UA fan.

By halftime, the Oregon Ducks were up 15. 

But by the end, the Ducks beat the Wildcats 95-89. 

Many Wildcat fans said they were devastated, but still prepared to stick by their team. 

"Tucson always shows up. We love our cats, we always have. We always will," said Ari Ochoa, a UA fan.
