The Horned Frogs look to improve to 6-0 on the season Friday night, when they take on Bradley in the Corpus Christi Coastal Classic.

Game Time: 6:00 p.m. Central

TV: CBS Sports Network (643/1643 UVerse, 221 DirecTV, 158 DISH, 94/594 Verizon FiOS)

TCU is 5-0 for the first time since 1997-98, the last time they made it to the NCAA Tournament. If they want to go to 6-0 this year, they have to get past a Bradley squad that is 2-2 on the season. Bradley, a member of the Missouri Valley Conference, last made the NCAA Tournament in 2006, reaching the Sweet Sixteen.

Since then, they've made a variety of tournaments, but have failed to get back to the big dance.

For the Frogs, a win could mean a rematch of last year's Big 12/SEC matchup between the Frogs and MIssissippi State. TCU won that game 71-61.

It should be a fun game tonight, and since it's on TV we can actually see this team play a bit. Stick around and chat with Hawk and me, if you can handle it.
