Senior guard Elijah Stewart scored 3 points in the team’s win over Colorado. Photo by Talk Volk | Daily TrojanIn light of the recent suspension of sophomore shooting guard De’Anthony Melton by the University for his involvement in the Tony Bland scandal, the Trojans hope to use the momentum from their recent victory over Colorado to pull off another home victory before traveling up north to play both Oregon and Oregon State.The Utes, meanwhile, come into Sunday’s game with a similar 10-5 record overall and 2-2 Pac-12 record and the second-best scoring defense in the conference.After a successful road trip to both Oregon schools, the Utes lost two straight games to Arizona and Arizona State last weekend. Led by a stingy defense, Utah is anchored by a combination of explosive guard play and physical forwards who can protect the paint.Starting forwards Tyler Rawson and David Collette are both 6’10” and capable of scoring double figures every night. While Collette is known for being more of a post player, Rawson can step outside and shoot an outside shot with efficiency, hitting 26 of his 66 3s this season. In terms of Utah’s other outside shooters, guard Justin Bibbins may be small at just 5’8” and 150 lb., but he has hit 36 of his 80 3-point attempts this season and has scored 98 points in his past five games. In response, to Utah’s size, USC will look to big men Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright to carry the brunt of the Utes’ offensive and defensive force.Although Metu made just three of his 13 shots against Colorado, the junior forward contributed on the defensive end by collecting season-highs in blocks (6) and rebounds (13).In terms of USC’s other starters, guards senior Elijah Stewart and sophomore Jonah Mathews have experienced some inconsistent play in the Pac-12. Stewart, a proficient 3-point shooter for USC last season, is averaging just 7.4 points per game and has hit just three 3-pointers on 14 shots (21 percent). Mathews, Stewart’s backcourt counterpart, has similarly struggled, hitting his first long balls in Pac-12 play on Wednesday night versus Colorado, breaking a streak of 10 straight missed 3s. To pick up the slack, USC’s bench has been surging as of late, as Jordan Usher and forward Nick Rakocevic have played huge offensive spark plugs for a Southern California squad that has struggled shooting the ball.Usher, who has been praised by USC coaches for his physicality and aggressive play, leads Trojan freshmen in terms of minutes (13.1) and scoring (3.4). Rakocevic is another Trojan who has shot and scored well, while also providing help defensively. Since USC’s win over Washington State, the sophomore has made 24 of his last 34 shots (70 percent) for 52 points and 27 rebounds.Even if Rakocevic and the rest of the Troy bench can contribute offensively, USC has struggled to shoot and defend the perimeter in Pac-12 play. If the team doesn’t protect the perimeter like it did against Stanford (5-22), the Trojans could be in for a long night defensively.The Trojans are set to tip off against the Utes at 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Galen Center.last_img read more

first_img Share in Data, Origination, Secondary Market application,Despite Slower Home Sales, Mortgage Demand Is Rising May 10, 2013 418 Views center_img Home sales declined in March, but demand for mortgage credit increased, according to the “”US Housing Market Monthly”” from “”Capital Economics.””:https://www.capitaleconomics.com/ The report maintains an overall positive outlook on the market despite the small decline in March sales and quashes any concerns of another bubble forming. [IMAGE] Total home sales decreased 0.4 percent over the month of March, according to the firm’s analysis, and the homeownership rate “”fell””:https://themreport.com/articles/homeownership-rate-drops-to-8-year-low-2013-04-30 to 65 percent. Capital Economics expects a further decline in homeownership to 64 percent “”within a year or so,”” but investors will continue to contribute to a housing recovery. Despite these declines, the Fed “”reported””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/snloansurvey/201305/default.htm an increase in home purchase applications in April, and credit “”loosened a touch,”” the report stated. [COLUMN_BREAK]Meanwhile, homes remain undervalued, despite rising prices, and it will likely be a few years before prices rise to fair market value, according to Capital Economics. Tight inventory continues to contribute to rising prices. The 4.9 month’s supply reported in March, up from 4.7 months’ supply in January, remains far below the 7-month norm. “”At the current rate of increase, it will be several years before supply conditions look normal,”” Capital Economics stated in its report. The tight supply should contribute to price increases of about 10 percent year-over-year in coming months. With current prices 5 percent undervalued compared to current rents and 20 percent below fair value compared to income per capita, “”concerns that a bubble is forming in US house prices are premature,”” Capital Economics stated. In fact, Capital Economics calculated with a 10 percent annual price gain with a 4 percent annual income gain, “”it will take until 2017 for housing to return to fair value.”” States with significant price gains are generally the same states with strong labor markets, according to Capital Economics. Florida, California, and Washington D.C., are all experiencing labor and price rebounds. However, Capital Economics warns the D.C. market may soon be affected by government cutbacks. Home builders face constraints related to building materials, labor, and land, but Capital Economics still forecasts increased activity moving forward.
