    IOWA CITY, Iowa - The attendance figures for the first round of the National Invitation Tournament, covering 16 games, are in. Iowa wins.

    Not only did the Hawkeyes score a 68-52 win over Indiana State Wednesday, but their sellout crowd of 15,400 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena easily dwarfed the two-largest first-round gatherings.

    Here are the home teams and their crowds in Round 1:

    Iowa 15,400

    BYU 7,511

    Southern Mississippi 5,018

    Providence 4,953

    Virginia 4,790

    Tennessee 4,468 (The Volunteers had averaged 16,635 for its regular-season home games. Its upset loss to Mercer Wednesday was played before a lot of ghosts and empties.)

    Maryland 4,053

    Baylor 4,034

    Arizona State 3,519

    Robert Morris 3,444 (sellout, for Kentucky)

    St. Joseph's 3,148

    Florida State 2,989

    Alabama 2,889

    Massachusetts 2,173

    Denver 2,094

    Stanford 1,050

    Denver is at Maryland tonight in the first game of the NIT's second round. Good seats are still available.
