Hawkeyes draw bigger NIT crowds than anyone else

There’s just something about the National Invitation Tournament that resonates with Iowa basketball fans.

Despite having only a couple of days to sell tickets, the Hawkeyes drew a crowd of 12,864 for their 87-75 victory over South Dakota in their NIT opener on Wednesday night.

That was nearly double what any of the other first-round NIT games attracted. The second largest crowd was 7,247 for BYU’s home game with Texas-Arlington in Provo, Utah. The average for the 15 NIT openers other than Iowa was 3,793.

Iowa will host TCU in the second round Sunday at 4 p.m. The game originally was announced to have a 6:30 start, but NIT officials changed it Thursday. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
