Devyn Marble scored 24 points and Aaron White added 11 with 13 rebounds as Iowa cruised past Indiana State 68-52 in the opening round of the NIT Wednesday night in Iowa City.

Melshan Basabe had nine points and eight boards for the Hawkeyes (22-12), who won a home game in the NIT for the second straight season. Iowa will next host Stony Brook in the second round Friday night.

Iowa shook off a sluggish start with a 19-4 run to open the second half. Playing before a sellout crowd of over 15,000, the Hawkeyes maintained a comfortable lead the rest of the way.

Justin Gant had 16 points to lead Indiana State (18-15), which was playing in the NIT for the first time since 1978.
