INDIANAPOLIS – It took one gutty decision, five bold dribbles and four dramatic bounces on the rim for Alex Barlow to become the toast of college basketball Saturday afternoon. It was partially an act of belief and partially an act of desperation that sent the Butler walk-on guard to the basket against No. 1 Indiana in a tie game in overtime. The sophomore who came into this season with one collegiate field goal was absolutely the Bulldogs' fifth offensive option at that moment, but there was no time to play the percentages and nobody open to defer to.
