Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall has been telling his team throughout the tournament to "play angry."

The Shockers have used this motto to focus their energy and attention on defeating one foe after another in this year's March Madness.

Starting with beating Pitt, continuing on to Gonzaga, La Salle and Ohio State, WSU has earned their way to Atlanta to play for the 2013 NCAA championship.

Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post captured Marshall's perspective on his team's Final Four status:

I don’t think we’re Cinderella at all. Cinderellas usually are done by this stage. If you get to this point, you can win the whole thing. You beat a No. 1 seed and a No. 2 seed. ... I think Cinderella just found one glass slipper. I don’t think she found four.

Ever since Sunday, Marshall and his staff have been devising their plan of action to take down the tournament's overall No. 1 seed Louisville.

Here is a blueprint for beating the Cardinals in the Final Four this Saturday (6:09 PM ET).

We'll look at three defensive and three offensive keys that could enable Wichita State to pull off a shocking upset.
