The Dakota State University men's basketball team plays their first home DAC conference games this weekend. The Trojans will host South Dakota School of Mines on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, DSU hosts the nationally-ranked Black Hills State at 6 p.m. All games will be held at the DSU Fieldhouse.
