question about it, Andrada said. But

STILLWATER, Okla. Avery Bradley Jersey . -- Even factoring in the recent loss of senior Marcell Ateman to injury, Oklahoma State boasts a formidable group of receivers, led by James Washington.Washington had an outstanding sophomore season last year, finishing with 53 receptions -- second on the club -- and team-leading totals of 1,087 yards and 10 touchdowns, and hopes to build on that success as a junior.Everyone wants to perform better than last season, and thats something I want to do and thats something I want to see my team do, Washington said Saturday, after the team completed its first week of practice. I feel like if I just help myself get better, Im helping my team get better -- for myself, just becoming more of a leader to this team and helping us get to a Big 12 championship and hopefully getting to a national championship.The 6-foot, 205-pound Washington possesses considerable speed and an ability to outleap defenders for the ball, serving as quarterback Mason Rudolphs favorite deep threat target. Last season, eight of Washingtons touchdowns came on passes of 40 yards or more, and he averaged 20.5 yards per catch, ranking second in the Big 12 and 10th in the nation.Rudolph, entering his junior year as an experienced starter, has developed strong chemistry, both on and off the field, with Washington.Weve got a good friendship, which helps -- we took a couple of classes together this summer and he did a good job of tutoring me in accounting, said Rudolph, who is completely healthy after a broken foot hobbled him for the final two games last season -- both of which OSU lost en route to a 10-3 record and a No. 19 ranking in the final poll. Hes a good guy, hes a quiet leader, he leads by example. Hes obviously a tremendous athlete and I think hell be a first-round pick one day.But Washington is just one of Oklahoma States receiving weapons. The squad graduated last years senior leaders David Glidden and Brandon Sheperd, and lost Ateman, who was third on the squad last year with 45 receptions and 766 yards, for an indeterminate timeframe with a broken foot, but still has plenty of options.Senior Jhajuan Seales (18 receptions, 321 yards, two touchdowns) and sophomore Jalen McCleskey (29 receptions, 253 yards, three TDs) each contributed last season and are expected to take another step forward, while senior Austin Hays (22 receptions, 200 yards, one TD) and junior Chris Lacy (eight receptions, 120 yards, two TDs) are also in the mix.When Marcell got hurt, it was tough to see that happen because he worked so hard in the off-season, but all the receivers have stepped up, said McCleskey, who also returned punts last season, averaging 5.0 yards and scoring a touchdown. He was a big part of our offense, but we feel like we have the depth for everybody to step up and us not slow down.Lacy and Seales, in particular, were singled out by head coach Mike Gundy as players that have stepped up so far in practice and will fill the void, and Rudolph agreed.Weve got plenty of talent there with those outside receivers, Jhajuan Seales and Chris Lacy, two guys that can make plays all over the place, and have game experience, Rudolph said. Theyre the first guys that backed Marcell up and can play both outside positions, have done a great job. I dont think well miss a beat on offense.As for Ateman, who sustained his injury during off-season training and recently underwent surgery to repair the damage, he probably wont be on the field for the Cowboys season opener against Southeastern Louisiana on Sept. 3. At this point, Gundy isnt sure exactly when hell be available.Theyre going to bring him back by the 14th of September, and theyll start to make a decision on where hes at, Gundy said of Ateman and the teams doctors. The foot injury he has, they have to re-X-ray it. Some guys are four weeks, some guys are six weeks, some guys are 10 weeks and you dont know. It just depends on the injury. Discount Clippers Jerseys .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Louis Williams Jersey . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Olympic organizers in Rio de Janeiro are trying to hand over almost $3 million in ticket refund payments due to 13,000 people.One big problem. They cant find them.We are hunting after people, Rio spokesman Mario Andrada told The Associated Press on Wednesday. We have the money, but dont know how to get it to them.Rio organizers allowed buyers to return tickets, which were resold.Instead of selling them to scalpers, they gave the tickets back to us, and we resold them, Andrada said.Andrada said 140,000 people returned Olympic and Paralympic tickets for resale, a value of 80 million Brazilian reals ($23.5 million).About 90 percent have been reimbursed. But incorrect bank details and faulty credit card numbers are hampering the remaining refunds that total about 9 million reals ($2.7 million).Andrada said Brazilians represented 99.9 percent of the unpaid money. He said organizers have tried to contact people through social media and newspaper advertisements. He said an organizing committee website is also open to handle refunds.Ticket problems plagued the Rio Games. Organizers apparently failed to sell enough tickets, leaving many empty seats at the vennues and giving the games and organizers a black eye. Chris Paul Jersey. The Rio organizing committee will officially dissolve in August 2017, leaving behind only a lawyers office to handle outstanding claims.Though Rio organizers have money to pay the ticket refunds, Andrada acknowledged about 700 creditors are still awaiting payments more than three months after the Olympics ended.He declined to say exactly how much was owed.He said the cash-strapped organizing committee, which needed a government bailout to pull off the Paralympics, was fighting a cash-flow problem and was still owed money by the International Olympic Committee.We will pay everybody, there is no question about it, Andrada said. But were not there yet.He said organizers needed to make about 20,000 payments to creditors, and are now down to 700.Its a long process, he said. We have gone from 5,000 employees to 300, and in the meantime we have this work.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: .
