Winning shot makes Barlow instant celebrity but change perspective for No. xx Barlow

Butler's Alex Barlow is back at work.

Less than 48 hours after hitting the biggest shot of his life — and one of the biggest in school history to upset No. 1 Indiana — the walk-on guard was back inside Hinkle Fieldhouse practicing.

That's just the way Barlow is, even after going from one of the least recognizable guys on campus to the best-known Bulldogs basketball player.

His phone hasn't stopped ringing. He's getting inundated with messages on social media and is making media rounds, too. Teammates are calling him "big shot," too.

All Barlow wants to do is be himself, that's going to get tougher now that Butler entered the Top 25 for the first time this season at No. 19.
