SPOKANE, Wash. -- USC has not been kind to Arkansas the last few years. The last two years the football team handed the Razorbacks back-to-back humiliations (combined score 120-31). The Trojans' 77-60 win tonight was more of the same, making the Hogs' unlikely trip to the tournament a short one. While Arkansas had a significant height advantage, they didn't take advantage of it. Taking coach Tim Floyd's keys to the game -- defense and rebounding -- to heart, the Trojans held the Razorbacks, 35 percent 3-point shooters, to 15 percent shooting from the arc. Most significantly, they outrebounded them 39-26, a stat that Floyd admitted surprised him.

I've always thought owning a home is a great investment for tax purposes, but I have yet to see the advantages. I've owned a home for five years now and pay between $6,000 and $7,500 a year in mortgage interest, but I don't seem to get much back at the end of the year. My refund is only about $200. Is owning a home worth it from a tax standpoint?
