Enrollment of full-time students at Cal State Dominguez Hills has reached an all-time high and will continue to rise over the next five years, university officials predicted. This fall, 7,948 students registered for full-time status. The previous record for the 33-year-old Carson campus was set in the fall of 1992 when 7,923 full-time students enrolled. University officials attribute the increase to growth in local school districts.

Cal State Dominguez Hills won its second game in three outings Thursday night, but you couldn't tell it by Coach Dave Yanai's comments. Yanai lashed out at his team for playing "stupid basketball" following its 78-74 victory over visiting North Central Illinois, a Division III team. "I'm tired of the excuses," Yanai said. "If you put on a uniform you better be ready to play." The Toros had 15 turnovers, allowing North Central (4-3) to claw back numerous times.
