    SYDNEY -- The manager of Australias Olympics team says Rio de Janiero organizers havent answered her concerns about security in the leadup to next months games. Kenyan Drake Jersey .Chef de mission Kitty Chiller wrote to games organizers on June 20 to express her concerns about pre-games security after Australian paralympics competitor Liesl Tesch and team physiotherapist Sarah Ross were robbed at gunpoint while training in Rio.Chiller asked organizers to bring forward the deployment of 85,000 security personnel to ensure team members are safe ahead of the August 5 opening of the games.She said Tuesday that she was confident the competition venues and surrounding areas will be safe during the game but Im going next week and I would like to know that I can walk the streets being safe from next week. Nate Allen Jersey . Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal.  Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review?  Why was this overturned?  James Veaudry Pembroke, ON --  Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. Dolphins Jerseys Store . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. http://www.cheapdolphinsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-jordan-phillips-jersey .R. Smith realized how easily basketball can be taken from him, and he wasnt going to take his place in the NBA for granted anymore. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Pat Chambers watched nearly all of the film available on Wright State heading into Saturday.Penn States coach was worried about the Raiders, specifically their ability to shoot 3-pointers with pinpoint accuracy and fill hoops at a clip of nearly 83 points per game. That average took a big hit after Penn State tilted the court decidedly with stingy defense in the Nittany Lions 72-50 win on Saturday.I probably watched six out of their nine games, Chambers said. They can really fill it up. A team like that really scares me, and man, these guys really stepped up.Shep Garner scored 17 points, Payton Banks added 15 and the Nittany Lions (6-3) held the Raiders (6-3) to just 16-of-66 shooting. Mark Alstork led Wright State with 15 points while Justin Mitchell and Steven Davis added nine each. Mitchell led the Raiders with 11 rebounds.Wright State shooters made just 6 of 23 3-pointers but heated up with three in the final seven minutes. By then it was too late as the Nittany Lions led by 27 when Mike La Tulip hit the Raiders final 3-pointer with 3:51 left.Im pretty sure thats the worst offensive output that Ive ever seen in 22 years, Wright State coach Scott Nagy said.Josh Reaves and Lamar Stevens added 12 points apiece for the Nittany Lions (6-3) who won their fourth straight. Tony Carr grabbed 12 rebounds.The Nittany Lions led for all but 56 seconds and pulled away after leading 29-26 at halftime. Penn State opened the second half with a 13-2 run and steadily increased it as the game wore on. The Raiders werent able to cut Penn States lead by any more than 13 points and did so when Grant Benzinger tipped in a rebound to make it 45-32 with 14:42 left.I thought our team did a really nice job coming out in the second half and basically saying, were better than what we showed in the first half, Chambers said.BIG MIKE, BIG DIFFERENCE MAKERPenn State forward Mike Watkins was dominant before foul trouble forced him to spend most of the first half on the bench.The 6-foot-9 forward grabbed five rebounds, blocked four shots and added a steal in the first seven minutes he played. He finished with eight blocks, nine rebounds, a steal and addded eight points. Jay Cutler Jersey. He was 6-for-6 shooting from the free-throw line.Id like to say a lot of times, we have really good defensive possessions and I like to think of myself as a really good on-ball defender, Reaves said. But just having Mike behind you, its just so comforting. Its God-given. Its just a blessing to have him behind us playing defense.When Watkins returned in the second half, he continued to foil the Raiders who had little success driving the basket and underneath. They finished with just 16 points in the paint.STEVENS BOUNCE BACKStevens first half ended poorly. He missed his last five shots, all short or mid-range jumpers and Wright State chipped away at Penn States lead in the meantime. Stevens entered the locker room frustrated.He sparked Penn States run in the second half with six of the teams first 13 points including two nice drives, one ending with a vicious slam dunk between defenders.I think that ignited us for sure, Chambers said. Lamar was pretty upset about how he finished the half and I talked to him very kindly at halftime and then he said to me, `I got you. And thats when I knew Lamar was about to turn it up and really play well. But we need that consistency for the minutes that hes on the floor.THE BIG PICTUREWright State: Picked in the preseason to finish in the middle of the Horizon League pack, the Raiders entered the game a game behind Valparaiso and Oakland for the conferences top spot. Theyll play five of their next six games on the road including the Horizon League opener against Oakland on Dec. 29.Penn State: The Nittany Lions have four players averaging in double figures and two are freshmen. The balanced scoring has been buoyed by Chambers commitment to spread minutes around to keep his players fresh. Eight of 10 Nittany Lions played at least 15 minutes on Saturday and the strategy appears to be paying off with four games left before Penn State begins Big Ten play.UP NEXTWright State plays at Loyola of Chicago on Wednesday.Penn State hosts George Mason on Wednesday. Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '
