INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Walk-on Alex Barlow made a spinning 6-foot jumper with 6.1 seconds left in overtime and Butler toppled No. 1 Indiana 88-86 Saturday in the Crossroads Classic.

Barlow had scored only 12 points all season. The Bulldogs (8-2) handed the Hoosiers their first loss and beat a top-ranked team for the first time in school history.

The Hoosiers (9-1) were led by Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller with 18 points each. Indiana had a chance to win it, but Jordan Hulls' half-court heave was off to the left.

Indiana rallied from a 71-64 deficit in the final 2 1/2 minutes to force overtime and led 84-80 with 2:12 to play. The Bulldogs charged back with two 3-pointers and won it with Barlow's short jumper.

Butler's Roosevelt Jones scored 16 points and matched his career-highs with 12 rebounds and six assists. He was one of three Butler players who fouled out.
