Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Butler didn't turn to its heralded transfer in Rotnei Clarke, or its highly-touted freshman in Kellen Dunham.

Instead the Bulldogs hung their hopes on a former walk-on.

And Alexander Barlow came though.

Barlow's floater in the paint with 2.3 seconds remaining lifted Butler to an 88-86 overtime upset win over top-ranked Indiana in the Crossroads Classic.

After Indiana's Cody Zeller tied the contest at 86-86 with 23 ticks left in the extra session, the Bulldogs called timeout and Barlow got the ball on the right wing.

Using a left-handed dribble, Barlow drove past Jordan Hulls and into the paint before spinning back to his right and getting a friendly roll on his floater.

Hulls' shot just inside the half-court line came up short at the other end.

The Hoosiers' Yogi Ferrell nailed a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation to knot the game at 76-76 and send the game into overtime.
