Both Marist College basketball teams have something to be thankful for heading into this week's holiday tournaments, even as both are coming off disappointing losses. Both the Marist men's and women's teams announced a pair of recruits had signed National Letters of Intent last week to come to Poughkeepsie in the fall. The men are adding guard Michael Besselink and post Luke Nedrow, both of whom filled needs, coach Mike Maker said.
Allie Clement has never been to Hawaii. But for as excited as the Marist College women's basketball guard is to see the The Rainbow State this week, she's also excited to get to spend Thanksgiving with her mom, Carolyn Clement, one of the parents accompanying the Red Foxes on their trip. College basketball teams don't always get to spend Thanksgiving with traditional family, as holiday tournaments have become commonplace for those who play, and watch, the sport.
The Marist College men’s basketball team will aim to collect its first win on Saturday, while the women’s team can start its first win streak of the year on Sunday. After dropping the first two games of the season, the men host the United States Military Academy at West Point at 7 p.m. Saturday. The women travel to Boston to take on Northeastern at 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
