Butler's win at Villanova Wednesday night doesn't change the Big East race: Both teams walked on the floor knowing they were finishing second and first, respectively, in the regular-season race. What it does change -- at least right now -- is Butler's NCAA tournament resume. Sweeping Villanova means two wins against a likely No. 1 seed, including one on the road, alongside a neutral-court win over Arizona and home wins over Cincinnati and Northwestern. It's the kind of accomplishment that, all else equal, can convince the committee to move you up a seed line (or two) on Selection Sunday. It's a big deal.
