For Cal State Los Angeles basketball Coach Henry Dyer, there is nothing like a little home cooking to start off a season. Cal State L.A. will play six of its first eight games at home to begin the upcoming basketball season. Dyer believes it is essential that his team take advantage of the home court from their first game, against East Texas State on Wednesday. "If we can get off to a good start, we'll be in the mix (of playoff teams) at the end of the season," Dyer said.

Tony McGee, the leading scorer on the Cal State Los Angeles basketball team, was suspended Tuesday night after a locker-room argument with Coach Henry Dyer. McGee, a senior forward, will miss the final regular-season game at Cal Poly Pomona on Saturday and postseason games, if the team qualifies. Said Dyer: "I was a (little upset) at the way we played, and he didn't like that I used him as an example. He couldn't handle the criticism."

It seemed like old times from the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. days when Cal State Northridge and Cal State Los Angeles went down to the wire at Matador Gymnasium on Saturday night. It meant nothing to Cal State L.A. that Northridge stepped up to Division I after 28 years in the CCAA. And the Matadors certainly didn't play the part of an uppity host--they lost, 76-74.

Looking for a quiet place to study Tuesday night? The Cal State Northridge gym was the place to be. Sure, there was a basketball game going on, but that wasn't going to bother any of the 217 in attendance. Why, it was so quiet inside that Darren Matsubara, Northridge's point guard, claimed he heard echoes when he called out a play. "I didn't even have to yell," Matsubara said. "I'd just say, 'One' and everyone in the gym could hear me."
