By John Crumpacker - #WCChoops Columnist At 1-2, it’s fair to say Santa Clara basketball has not gotten off to the start it wanted after home losses to Nevada and Cal Poly, with a Thanksgiving week trip to the Great Alaska Shootout upcoming. Nevertheless, there is reason for hope on the Mission campus as coach Herb Sendek begins his second season in charge of the Broncos. Guard K.J. Feagin is healthy following offseason foot surgery and is averaging 18.3 points and 3.0 assists per game.
By John Crumpacker - #WCChoops Columnist There’s a whole lot of gone in WCC men’s basketball this season, one day away from the start of 2017-18. In fact, an entire all-star team could be assembled from accomplished players around the conference now plying their trades elsewhere or simply getting on with their post-hoops lives. Santa Clara’s Jared Brownridge, the WCC’s career scoring leader? Gone.
LAS VEGAS - Over the course of a few hours spent bopping between tables at the WCC Tip-Off event last week at the Orleans in Las Vegas, it was a toss-up as to what was the best item culled among the conference’s 10 women’s teams. It could be the fact that at Loyola Marymount, Cal transfer Gabby Green’s father, Will Green, is dating the mother of one of her current teammates, Bree Alford, and has been for some time. Sorry, nothing TMZ-salacious here.
Surprising result from the Slim Gym in San Diego as previously winless in WCC Portland defeats Toreros 55-49 for first conference win (1-6). USD's Isaiah Pineiro has 26 points, 11 rebounds, all for naught.#WCChoops
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".
