Offense was at a premium to open the World University Games, but Team USA found just enough late for a narrow win. Despite going hitless for seven-plus innings, USA strung together three knocks in the eighth and pushed across two runs, holding on for a 3-2 victory over Mexico in Taipei, Taiwan. Locked in a 1-1 tie, Ben Norman was plunked to open the eighth and moved to third on Robert Neustrom’s single — USA’s first hit of the night.
IOWA CITY, Ia. — After guiding the Hawkeyes to their most productive year in two-plus decades, a season that injected life into a dormant program, Bond Shymansky knows the forward movement must continue. “There’s no finish line,” the fourth-year Iowa volleyball coach said Friday at media day inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. “There’s no end. There’s no, ‘OK, I’ve done that enough and I’m ready to stop.’ It’s a consistent, constant challenge for our whole group — and that includes me, too.
The Missouri Valley Conference announced Thursday that it has exercised its two-year option to keep its men’s basketball conference tournament at Scottrade Center in St. Louis through 2020. Often dubbed “Arch Madness,” the MVC Tournament has been in St. Louis since 1991. The option came with the parties’ three-year contract extension that was announced in July 2014. That extension began in 2016 and ran through 2018. The Scottrade Center has hosted the MVC Tournament since 1995.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
