INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Defending national champion Villanova was upset by Butler last night, 66-58. The top-ranked Wildcats were 14-0 entering the game and the loss now means we will probably see a new No. 1 next week when The Associated Press releases its new poll. The 18th-ranked Bulldogs hit six straight free throws in the final 33 seconds to finish a perfect 15-for-15 from the line.
