Radford at Texas Christian
When: 8:00 PM ET, Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Where: Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, Fort Worth, Texas

TCU, off to its first 4-0 start since the 2007-08 season, hosts Radford on Wednesday night in the on-campus portion of the Corpus Christi Coastal Classic. Both teams head south for semifinal games Friday night, with the Horned Frogs facing Bradley and the Highlanders taking on North Carolina A&T. The trip marks the first time in 28 years that Radford, one of the favorites in the Big South Conference, has played in Texas.

TCU presented head coach Trent Johnson with his 250th coaching victory Monday night when it doubled up on visiting Mississippi Valley State, 106-53. The point total was the highest in a regulation game for the Horned Frogs since recording 108 points against South Florida in 2002. It also was the highest scoring output by any Big 12 team this season.

TIME: 8 p.m. ET, no TV

ABOUT RADFORD (2-2): The Highlanders are led by preseason all-Big South forward Javonte Green who leads the team in both scoring (15.8) and rebounding (10.0). The high-flying 6-foot-4 senior has scored 1,449 career points, which ranks seventh in school history. Forward Brandon Holcomb, who at 6-foot-7 is the Highlanders' tallest starter, is averaging six rebounds and 1.8 blocks.

ABOUT TCU (4-0): Senior point guard Kyan Anderson is the only Horned Frog to average in double figures (13.5) and also leads the team in assists (4.5) and steals (1.5).

1. TCU ranks 15th nationally with an average of 19.5 assists per game.

2. Anderson has 18 assists and just three turnovers in four games.
