Mon, 18 Mar 2013 01:59:59 GMT — Iowa City, IA - Iowa has earned a No. 3 seed in the National Invitational Tournament and will host Indiana State on Wednesday. The Hawkeyes (21-12) missed out on their first NCAA tournament bid in seven years after losing to Michigan State 59-56 on Friday night. Though Iowa won 10 Big Ten games, its lack of quality non-conference and road victories proved to be its undoing. Iowa is back in the NIT for the second year in a row. The Hawkeyes beat Dayton before losing at Oregon last season.
Indiana State (18-14) finished 9-9 in the Missouri Valley but lost three of its last four.
