Cal women’s swim hasn’t competed in a month, but the No. 5 team in the nation doesn’t acquire rust easily — especially in its home water. The Bears are undefeated in Berkeley but as they prepare to host No. 20 Arizona, along with Arizona State — a team just shy of the top-25 rankings — they’ll have to be wary of the double header putting them on upset alert. This will be the Bears’ first meet of the calendar year, with the fun beginning Friday with Cal taking on ASU.
A win is a win — pretty or ugly, blowout or buzzer-beater. No. 21 Cal women’s basketball (13-4, 4-2) wrapped up its weekend at home, 2-0, with a Sunday win over Washington State (8-10, 1-5), 66-60. The Bears were hungry for the weekend sweep after beating Washington on Friday night, but after three consecutive tight games to weak competition, Cal’s ability to hang with the top dogs hangs in question.
A drained three that was good right from the release was the big “welcome back” to junior guard Asha Thomas that Cal desperately needed. After losing Thomas to injury in its last contest against Arizona, the No. 24 Cal women’s basketball (12-4, 3-2) team looked revamped as it beat Washington (6-10, 0-5) 69-60 at home. Thomas finished with 14 points in 31 minutes of play and hit three of the team’s four triples, but the biggest chunk of Cal’s offensive production lived in the post.
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".
