Lynn Marshall doesn’t go unnoticed on the sidelines.

At every game she is yelling and cheering — all while wearingWichita State junior forward Zach Brown’s jersey that she got from a season before.

Lynn, wife of Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall, said people often flock to the leading scorer after the game. She said she’ll sometimes see Brown sitting at his locker unaccompanied.

“I go over to him and I’m just like, ‘Hey, you know what? I know what you do for the team and I know you do all the dirty work,'” Lynn said.

Lynn sat behind the Shockers’ bench during an away game when Wichita State trailed by 10. Frustrated, she watched as Brown, covered in sweat, took a seat on the bench. She called out to Brown and said, “If everyone played as hard as you, we would be up by 15.”

Brown turned around and said, “Yeah, I got you,” when she called out for defense.

He said he appreciate the support from Lynn, especially with how close the two are.

“I love it,” Brown said. “She’s another mother to me.”
