Still under both the proverbial radar and preferred height for those playing at the highest level of college basketball, Alex Barlow will admit that his life has changed over the last month only because it has.
When the 5'11 Barlow hit an overtime runner to beat then-No. 1 Indiana on Dec. 15, he was a walk-on hero, the latest in a long line of them in Butler's giant-killing...

The Butler Bulldogs just beat number one ranked Indiana on Saturday. This is the same Butler team that ran UNC out of the gym a few weeks ago. Yet, they are completely disrespected in the latest basketball poll.After losing, Indiana dropped to 6th in the latest poll. And the best Butler can do is "others receiving votes" with five votes? Seriously, do any of the voters...
