Shockers benefiting from one game per week

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- Wichita State took down its first Big 12 opponent this past Saturday, and will have seven days to prepare for their next one.

Oklahoma is the first true road test for Gregg Marshall's young squad, as they take on the Sooners in Oklahoma City Saturday morning. He said they could use as much practice time as possible to prepare.

"I think we'll continue to get better if these guys continue to allow us to coach them, push them, and just refine everything that we do," Marshall said.

The Shockers have only played one game per week since returning from the Charleston Classic, defeating both Rice and Baylor at home.

Marshall said the team practices for only two hours per day, with lifting and film obligations taking up the rest of the time.

To get better quickly, this team will have the make the most of their sessions together.

"We have so many things to work on that honestly, I don't have enough time every day." he said. "Yesterday and today are mostly about us, but we're talking about Oklahoma. They'll see video of Oklahoma. We'll sprinkle in some Oklahoma concepts in practice today. It's going to be a great game, but we have to play well now."

The Shockers and Sooners tip off at 11:00am Saturday at Chesapeake Bay Arena in Oklahoma City.
