There is a lower row of bleachers just inside the door of the gymnasium at Cal State Dominguez Hills where, at any given home game, an assortment of former Toro basketball players often sit for games. It has been jokingly said that so many players with remaining eligibility show up there that Toro Coach Dave Yanai doesn't need to leave the campus to recruit, he can merely field a team by gesturing across the court from his seat on the bench.

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury on Friday ordered Cal State Dominguez Hills to pay former NBA player Mack Calvin $210,000, ruling that he was the victim of discrimination based on race while coaching the school's men's basketball team during the 1996-97 season. Calvin, who is African American, had his one-year renewable contract terminated after one season as coach. The jury voted, 10-2, in Calvin's favor after four days of testimony and two days of deliberations.

The Cal State Northridge women's basketball team did a lot of things well on Thursday night. Except the most-important thing, which is to put the ball in the basket. The Matadors played well on defense and created open shots on offense, but they made only 28% of them and lost, 66-56, to Cal State Dominguez Hills, a Division II school, in a nonconference game at Matador Gym. "The problem for me is I have to find some system to get some points on the board," Northridge Coach Michael Abraham said.

The first thing--perhaps the most important thing--to remember about the velodrome bicycle is that it has no brakes. This initially worried Guy Barker, a 37-year-old sales manager more accustomed to biking the gentle byways of Huntington Beach. But the novice velodrome rider understood the reason: Sudden braking could cause collisions when bikers are whirling around the track at more than 30 m.p.h. in a pack.

After the lectures, concerts and exhibits that mark African-American History Month are over, Cal State Dominguez Hills student David Baker is certain what will remain with him. "Black history," he said, "is my history 365 days a year." Baker, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi, one of the school's two African-American fraternities, takes umbrage at the notion that appreciation of black history ends at the end of February.
