ST. LOUIS, Mo. -

Ron Baker's family left Scott City to make the 11 hour drive to St. Louis earlier this week. They're here to cheer on their son and the Shockers as they continue on the road to the Final Four.

Ranae Baker says she'll never get used to her son on national TV, but she's proud of how he and his team carry themselves with so many watching.

"That's one thing Coach Marshall stressed when we met him. He wants his team to be respectful to everyone they meet and you can see that in all they do," Ranae said.

Ranae says she still gets nervous before every game, especially heading into the NCAA tournament. But she says she's just trying to enjoy the ride and she's thankful to a team and game that's given her family so much.

"Ron has been to more places than I will ever go with the team, but when we can, we'll hop in the car and travel along," Ranae said.
