LOS ANGELES -- Last season, Chimezie Metu got a lot of playing time for Southern California without having much experience. Cheap Basketball Hoodies .All those minutes are starting to pay off for him as a sophomore.Metu had 15 points and 11 rebounds to help the Trojans rally over the final 8:49 to beat Omaha 82-72 Sunday after trailing most of the game.Im trying to play as hard as possible, Metu said. This year we dont have as many great rebounders on our team as we did last year.Shaqquan Aaron scored 15 points, DeAnthony Melton had 13 points and nine rebounds, and Jordan McLaughlin added 12 points for the Trojans (2-0).We knew it would be a tough second game for us as we adjust to our lineups and rotations, especially with (Bennie) Boatwright being injured, USC coach Andy Enfield said. Our players played an excellent second half defensively that helped us win the game.Marcus Tyus scored a career-high 33 points and TreShawn Thurman had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Mavericks (1-1), who were trying to beat a Pac-12 team for the first time.What we had trouble with was Marcus Tyus, Enfield said. It didnt matter whether we were man or zone, he made shots.The Mavs led by six early in the second half when the Trojans got loose for three consecutive dunks, two by Metu and one from DeAnthony Melton to tie the game 49-all.We were just trying to get on the run and get a lot of stops, Metu said, and it was turning into some points for us. We were just looking for some energy, some kind of spark.Aarons 3-pointer tied the game for the last time at 53-all. From there, USC closed the game on a 31-19 run.BIG PICTUREOmaha: Picked to finish fourth in the Summit League, the Mavs will go as Tra-Deon Hollins and Thurman go. Hollins led the nation in steals (127) and steals per game (3.9) as a junior last season, when he averaged 12.5 points. The Mavs have a tough nonconference schedule, with road games at Kansas State, Iowa, No. 24 Iowa State and Pittsburgh.USC: The Trojans protected their home court, where they are in the midst of playing five of six games.OUCHAaron raced in for a fast break layup with 1:33 to go in the first half and went off the back of Omahas Mitch Hahn, sending him crashing to the floor at the base of the basket support. He walked off on his own and had his right wrist wrapped before returning in the second half.If anything it kind of hyped him up even more, Melton said. When he gets mad, he really gets rolling. Its fun watching him play.BACK WITH A BANGTyus played just his second game since Feb. 7, 2015, at Denver, where he sustained a season-ending knee injury. He was 3 of 11 and scored nine points in the Mavs win over UCSB on Saturday.Against the Trojans, he was 11 of 18 from the floor, hit six 3-pointers and went 5 of 7 from the free throw line in 35 minutes.Its an amazing feeling to get a career high, he said. Ive been away for so long. My teammates just kept telling me if youre open, shoot. I got a confidence boost after my first couple of shots went in.UP NEXTOmaha: The Mavs visit Kansas State on Tuesday to finish off three road games in four days to open the season.USC: Visit Texas A&M on Friday in just the teams second-ever meeting. USC won 26-18 on Dec. 18, 1936. Jerseys Basketball China . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. Wholesale NBA Stitched Jerseys . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. http://www.cheapjerseysnbaoutlet.com/ . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. PITTSBURGH -- Once opponents get into the red zone, the Steelers take it as a challenge to keep them out of the end zone.Thats part of the reason why Pittsburghs defense leads the league in stops inside the 20-yard line, including four goal-line stands in the past two weeks, entering Sundays road game against the Buffalo Bills.Its a short field and teams feel like they can get it on you, Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons said. They want to get one up on you, so as a defense, when you stop that, you go out there and assert yourself in a certain way and thats what we do.Timmons did as much when he came through with a game-changing interception at the goal line last Sunday against the New York Giants.Timmons picked off Eli Manning and the Steelers offense capitalized with a touchdown a little more than a minute later. Linebacker Ryan Shazier later broke up a pass on fourth-and-1 from the 3-yard line, helping the Steelers win their third straight game.Thats huge when you have an offense about to score and you stop them, Timmons said. Were just trying to stop them and get the ball back to our offense.The Steelers rank 19th against the pass, giving up 256 yards per game and 14th in total yards allowed at almost 350 per game.But Pittsburgh leads the NFL in red-zone touchdown efficiency at 42.5 percent, as opponents have scored 17 touchdowns in 40 red-zone drives this season.We dont want to let them get down there, but when they get down there, we have to keep them out, safety Mike Mitchell said. Thats our job.Pittsburgh gave up 113 points during a recent four-game losing streak, but the Steelers have stiffened since, allowing just 30 points the previous three games. The Steelers, ranked No. 7 in the league in scoring defense at 19.7 points per game, held each of their previous three opponents to 14 points or less for the first time since 2011.Teams are tryiing to score points and were just trying to shut them down, Shazier said. Wholesale Basketball. We practice that every day, so when we get down (in the red zone), were ready for the situation.Preparation has been key for the Steelers, who regularly practice a goal-line drill called seven shots, where the offense has seven chances to score on the defense from the 2-yard line. More than that, the Steelers focus on an area they call the field goal fringe in addition to red zone and goal-line work.We get a lot of work against some good players, Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler said. We try out different things to see if it works against our offense. If it works against our offense, its probably going to work against everybody elses offense.The Steelers offense is one of the most prolific in the league, led by two-time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger. Antonio Brown is among the league leaders in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Running back LeVeon Bell leads the league in yards from scrimmage per game and ranks second in rushing yards per contest.Its good practice for the Steelers defense when the opposition reaches the red zone.The players we have on our offense, its hard for everybody in the NFL to stop them, Shazier said. If we can shut them down, we definitely feel like we can shut anybody down.Game notes K Chris Boswell (abdomen), G Ramon Foster (chest), DT Javon Hargrave (concussion), WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and S Shamarko Thomas (concussion) did not practice for a second straight day. ... TE Ladarius Green (not injury related), QB Zach Mettenberger (illness) and RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) also missed practice Thursday.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseyscheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' 'ons jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
