WSU students camp outside Koch Arena for Saturday’s game


CAMPING OUT IN MARSHALLVILLE ON W- S-U’S CAMPUS. KAKE’S MADELINE ANDERSON CAUGHT UP WITH FANS OUTSIDE KOCH ARENA. HI GUYS I’M HERE AT MARSHALLVILLE ON THE NORTHEAST SIDE OF CAMPUS… THE TRADITION WHERE STUDENTS WAIT OUTSIDE THE ROUNDHOUSE BEFORE A BIG GAME. ALTHOUGH IT’S BITTERLY COLD TONIGHT…. AROUND 60 DIE HARD FANS ARE CAMPING OVERNIGHT FOR A CHANCE TO SCORE PRIME SEATS AT SATURDAY’S MATCH UP. “It’s fantastical. That’s all I can say about it.” AS ESPN’S COLLEGE GAME DAY MAKES ITS FIRST APPEARANCE AT WICHITA STATE… MANY WSU STUDENTS ARE ALSO MARKING THEIR FIRST TIME EXPERIENCING MARSHALLVILLE. “This game is a big one. And I’m really hyped about it ” BUT FIRST… THEY’LL HAVE TO MAKE IT THROUGH NOT ONE.. BUT TWO NIGHTS IN THE COLD. THE STRATEGY? “We have a space heater over there and then a bunch of hand warmers and blankets and hopefully friends will snuggle and help.” “I got this tent. I got it shipped in from Alaska. It’s 13 by 27 ft.” AND TO PASS THE TIME… LOTS OF JOKES… LOTS OF TALK ABOUT THE SHOCKERS… AND LOTS OF TIME TO CATCH UP WITH FRIENDS. “We have an east side, south side Marshallville, and you only go to the east side if you have a buddy.” “You have awesome fans all around. We talk and just gear up for the game.” I think some of us aren’t even the biggest basketball fans but it’s more the experience.” EVEN THE MAN WHO MARSHALLVILLE IS NAMED AFTER… COACH MARSHALL… SHOWED UP TONIGHT TO THANK ALL OF THE FANS FOR THEIR SUPPORT. REPORTING ON THE WSU CAMPUS… MADELINE ANDERSON KAKE NEWS. THE LIVE PRE-GAME SHOW STARTS AT 10 AM ON ESPN – AFTER A TAPED HOUR-LONG SHOW AT 9 AM ON ESPNU. THE GAME STARTS AT 1 P-M.
