LOS ANGELES -- Last season, Chimezie Metu got a lot of playing time for Southern California without having much experience. Custom Padres Jerseys .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. Authentic Custom Padres Jersey . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. Custom Padres T-shirts . - Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was speaking to a group of local high school students earlier this week when the conversation turned to the importance of being prepared when opportunities in life arise. http://www.custompadresjersey.com/ . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Ross Detwiler knows it will take more than one strong outing for people to take him seriously again as a starting pitcher.Eight scoreless innings in his Oakland Athletics debut is certainly a good place to start, and far more than what manager Bob Melvin hoped for from his new left-hander.Detwiler and John Axford combined on a seven-hitter and Oakland beat Baltimore 1-0 on Wednesday night to knock the Orioles out of first place in the AL East.Our reports had more fastballs than anything else but he mixed it up really good today, Melvin said. Some curveballs, some sliders, some changeups. It was way more than we expected.Called up from the minors earlier in the day, Detwiler (1-0) allowed six hits over a career-high eight innings and struck out two while leading the As to their third consecutive one-run win over the Orioles.It was Detwilers first win as a starting pitcher since he was with Washington and beat the Chicago Cubs on May 10, 2013.Not bad for a pitcher who has spent most of the past two-plus seasons as a reliever. Detwiler was also nearly out of baseball after being designated for assignment by Cleveland in July before the As acquired him in a trade.Its a good start but its just one good start, Detwiler said. Its a good step in the right direction. I walked in last night ... and I felt like I had been here for a long time. I was welcomed with open arms and that helps a lot.Axford retired three batters for his second save.Chris Davis had two hits for Baltimore.The Orioles entered the day percentage points ahead of Toronto but fell a game behind the Blue Jays, who beat Tampa Bay 7-0 earlier Wednesday.Its the time of year we cant find a break, Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado said. Were all struggling right now. Real teams will come out of it. We know were better than this.Marcus Semien and Yonder Alonso hit consecutive doubles in tthe third inning for the games only run. Wholesale Custom Padres Shirts. The As had lost eight of nine and were swept in three games by the Chicago Cubs before stunning the Orioles.Baltimore starter Yovani Gallardo (4-4 ) allowed one run in six innings with six strikeouts and two walks.NAILED AT THE PLATEDetwiler gave up a single and a double to the first two hitters he faced and threw two wild pitches in the first inning but escaped without allowing a run. Adam Jones was thrown out sliding into home by Oakland second baseman Max Muncy in the inning. Jones tried to score on J.J. Hardys double over the head of right fielder Danny Valencia and was initially ruled safe by home plate umpire Chad Fairchild. The As challenged and the call was overturned when replays showed Jones front leg above the plate when he was tagged out.I think the slide helped us out some, that (Jones) was above the plate, Melvin said. You dont think at that time thats going to be a key play in the game but it ended up being one.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: T.J. McFarland (left knee inflammation) pitched three scoreless innings for the Gulf Coast Orioles. McFarland is scheduled to pitch next for Single-A Frederick on Monday.Athletics: Former closer Sean Doolittle (strained left shoulder) will throw off a mound this weekend and will need to face hitters at least twice before beginning a rehab assignment. ... Left-handed reliever Patrick Schuster was designated for assignment.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Chris Tillman (14-4) faces the As in a mid-day game at the Coliseum. Tillman will try to become the first Baltimore pitcher with at least 15 wins since Bud Norris and Wei-Yin Chen in 2014.Athletics: RHP Andrew Triggs (0-0) will come out of the bullpen to make his second career start in the series finale.
