Iowa beats Virginia to advance to NIT Final 4

Posted:

Roy Devyn Marble scored 24 points and Iowa ended Virginia's 19-game home winning streak with a 75-64 victory in the NIT quarterfinals on Wednesday night, earning the Hawkeyes a trip to Madison Square Garden.

Marble's 3-pointer with 13:02 to play gave Iowa (24-12) a 42-41 lead and sparked a 19-5 run that also featured six points inside from Adam Woodbury and 3-pointers by Josh Oglesby and Zach McCabe. McCabe's finished the run, putting the Hawkeyes ahead 58-46 with 5:18 to play.

Justin Anderson scored a career-high 24 points to lead Virginia (23-12), but the Cavaliers had no answer once the Hawkeyes took charge.

It was only the second home loss for the Cavaliers, and both denied them a trip to New York. The first came against Delaware in the Preseason NIT, also with a trip to Madison Square Garden on the line, and had been Virginia's last home loss.
