Wichita State players 'Googled' its location

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.

Hard work has shaped Wichita State

It was the middle of winter in Wichita, and Gregg Marshall gathered his Wichita State team in the film room to show them what he called the "play of the year." At this point in the season, things were looking surprisingly good for a team that wasn't supposed to do too much. After losing their top five scorers from the season before, the Shockers had nine new faces...

Shockers are magic made for March

This is why we watch. Because any given March, a team full of transfers and castoffs, from a commuter campus in a city more known as the birthplace of Pizza Hut, can become the hottest thing in sports overnight. On Saturday night in Los Angeles, Gregg Marshall's Wichita State Shockers did what they always do. They outhustled and outmuscled the favored Ohio State Buckeyes. They...

CU's Jones, Wichita's Hall know value of heart

Josh Jones came into Koch Arena just as Carl Hall was leaving, wounded hearts passing in the January night. "How's your thumb?" asked Jones, Creighton's senior guard.

Marshall has No. 20 Wichita State flying high

There are some coaches in college basketball who always seem composed. They may be churning below the surface, but outwardly they're calm, keeping everything bottled up until a player makes an errant pass or an official's call goes the other way.

Shockers won't let injuries become an excuse

Fortune favors the bold, abandons the timid, and seems to enjoy kicking Gregg Marshall square in the backside. Over the span of a few days in December, Wichita State lost its leading scorer (Carl Hall) to a broken thumb; arguably its best 3-point ace (Ron Baker) to a stress fracture in the foot; and another outside threat (Evan Wessel) to a broken pinky finger. Three starters, kaput...
