The road to Atlanta wasn't easy. Eyewitness Sports reporter Jenn Bates caught up with Coach Marshall before he left town to talk about the incredible season.
Many would call the Shocker's trip to the Final Four shocking. The team has been through a lot this year. They were picked to finish fourth in the Missouri Valley and dealt with several injuries.
"Replacing the five seniors from last year and going through the injuries we've been able to overcome with four starters. That's strengthened them (the team) and made them very tough. They've got great resolve and have been able to persevere which is what you're going to find in an NCAA tournament," Marshall said.
While Wichita State may be considered the underdogs, many may be cheering for Louisville after the injury Kevin Ware suffered last week.
"I felt bad for Kevin Ware. It's very emotional. I'm pulling for the kid to have speedy and complete recovery. I'm not concerned about who's pulling for who. There are many that haven't pulled for us the entire time because they didn't know we were in the tournament. But here we are in the Final Four. We'll have our share of people wearing yellow and black," Marshall said.
When asked about competing against a lot of great coaches, Marshall says it's an honor.
"I respect them tremendously, that doesn't mean I'm in awe. I'm going to go out there and compete with these coaches. I'm going out there expecting to win," he said.
