ATLANTA Don't leak this information to fiery head coach Gregg Marshall, but Wichita State is playing the de factor Cinderella at the Final Four in Atlanta, due in large part to the fact that not many people could find the school on a map prior to the Shockers' upsets over Gonzaga and Ohio State.

“I just wanted to try something different,” Hall explained. “I wanted to be like a new person coming into this tournament.”
