NEW YORK -- Roy Devyn Marble and Iowa could get used to these fast starts.Marble had 21 points and nine rebounds to help Iowa, whose slow start to the Big Ten season kept the Hawkeyes from the NCAA tournament, reach the National Invitation Tournament championship game for the first time with a 71-60 win over Maryland on Tuesday night."I thought one of the keys to the game was how we came out," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "We got into a flow early, and then the same thing late, kept everything going."
