The women's basketball team at Sierra College continued its blistering start to the season with a trio of blowout wins last week, extending its win streak to 17 games. The undefeated Wolverines went 12-0 in tournament play and have now carried that success over to conference play where they are 5-0 after last week's victories over Sacramento City College, 71-45, Diablo Valley College, 92-78, and Modesto Junior College, 102-61.
The Bear River Bruins (10-3) headed more than 250-miles up the California coast where they will face off with the Fortuna Huskies (12-2) in Fortuna at 6 p.m. today for the NorCal 5-A title. The Union will provide live coverage of the game right here at TheUnion.com. At 4 p.m., The Union will launch a live feed offering updates from The Union Sports Editor Walter Ford and Multimedia Journalist Elias Funez — along with updates from KNCO, fan comments, and photos.
The 2017-18 college basketball season has tipped off and several local alumni are helping their respective teams get off to strong starts. David O'Brien, a 2016 Bear River graduate, and the Shasta College basketball Knights won the Shasta Invitational over the weekend, going 3-0 with wins over Columbia College, Santa Rosa Junior College and Cabrillo College. O'Brien, a sophomore guard, played significant minutes off the bench in all three games.
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".
