It’s been a while since a Lee’s Summit team failed to reach the final of the Culver’s Classic — nine years, as a matter of fact. That streak will come to an end this year. Lee’s Summit and Lee’s Summit North, the two city teams in the 43rd edition of the annual boys’ basketball tournament, both lost during Monday night’s first-round games at Lee’s Summit’s Field House. And they lost in strikingly different fashions.
North Kansas City’s boys and Kearney’s girls both came into the Kearney Bulldog Classic on a roll. They left the same way. The undefeated Hornets, who are ranked fifth in Missouri Class 5 by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association, won the 51st annual boys’ tournament with a 63-48 victory versus the host Bulldogs in the championship game Jan. 13 at Kearney. Along the way, North Kansas City also beat Smithville 76-44 and William Chrisman 64-61 to reach the final.
Chad Friess wasn’t going to let one bad game — two bad quarters, actually — spoil a good week of basketball for Summit Christian Academy’s girls. The Eagles made it all the way to the championship game of the Pleasant Hill Basketball Invitational despite entering the tournament as a No. 6 seed. After pulling off two upsets to make the final, SCA didn’t have the firepower to pull off a third and lost to top-seeded Odessa 44-27 on Jan. 12 at Pleasant Hill.
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".
