The Cal State Dominguez Hills men's basketball team begins a four-game road trip today at San Francisco State.
Dominguez Hills (1-1) will be at Cal State Hayward on Sunday and Cal State Sacramento on Monday before returning to Southern California for a game Thursday at Biola University.
The Toros lost in overtime to Grand Canyon College in their opener last week, 72-67, then came from 11 points down to defeat Puget Sound, 69-67, last Saturday.
Coach David Yanai hopes the swing through Northern California will help the team develop.
"A road trip this time of year for a young club helps them feel for each other," he said. "It helps them get to know each other. We've been trying to get them to gel. Sometimes their relationships off the court help that happen."
Anthony Blackmon, a junior forward, scored 24 and 17 points in the first two games, including a pair of free throws with 25 seconds left against Puget Sound that provided the margin of victory.
