"Anyone, anywhere, anytime" has been the scheduling mantra of Gregg Marshall this year and last.

How does the University of Memphis in South Dakota sound?

The Shockers head coach told CBS Sports Gary Parrish Tuesday that his team will play the Tigers in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the Sanford Pentagon, part of ESPN's Tip off Marathon coverage. Game is scheduled for November 18th.

Marshall told CBS Sports.com, "they have a nice arena, and they're paying us both a lot of money to be there. So we're taking Wichita State and Memphis to South Dakota, and we're going to sell it out. It's good for everybody concerned. Two of the best non-BCS team in the country at a neutral-site early in the season. It's going to be great."

Wichita State plays the winner of the Cal Poly/Texas Southern play-in game, Friday at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo. The Shockers are the top seed in the Midwest Region.
