Shockers aim to keep 25-win season streak alive

ORLANDO, Fla. (KAKE) -

The No. 11 Wichita State Shockers have a shot to lock down a ninth straight 25 win season when they take on the Temple Owls in the American Athletic Conference quarterfinals on Friday.

The streak would be the fourth longest active streak in college basketball only behind Kansas, Gonzaga and Duke.

"To get 25 wins, you've got to have great players," head coach Gregg Marshall said. "You've got to have a staff that is continually preparing, scouting reports, that can put themselves in a position to be successful and then you've got to go out and execute your game plan and execute as hard or harder than your opposition then play as smart or smarter than the opposition, make some shots. We've been fortunate to have all of those things the last eight, nine years, we've still got to win one more to get to nine but hopefully we can do that this weekend and hopefully push a little farther."

WSU will play at 6 p.m. Friday on ESPNU.
