      Iowa defeats Maryland 71 to 60 to advance to the NIT championship game

      Devyn Marble had 21 points and nine rebounds to help Iowa reach the NIT championship for the first time with a 71-60 win over Maryland on Tuesday night. Iowa (25-12), which has recovered from a rocky start to its Big Ten season, won for the 11th time in 14 games.

      Eric May finished with 12 points, his last on a big 3-pointer with 1:01 to play that iced it for the Hawkeyes, who laid the foundation for a future Big Ten rivalry with Maryland, which is set to join the conference starting in 2014.
