When region tourney time rolls around in a couple of weeks in Jamestown, Kidder County coach Dan Welder expects an excellent atmosphere. "Our region tournament is going to be like a state tournament," Welder said. "If you don't have a specific team to follow, and just want to watch some good basketball, that tournament will be a great place to be. "Brett Thielges, coach of No. 2-ranked Medina-Pingree-Buchanan, had the exact same take. "It's going to be like a mini-state tournament," Thielges said.
Mandan might only be 1-1 in its last two games, but it's the best 1-1 in the state.Coach Abby Thomas' Braves are playing some of the best basketball around as evidence by Tuesday night's thrilling 58-56 squeaker over No. 2-ranked St. Mary's. That win, coupled with the Braves' near-miss against No. 1-ranked Century seven days ago, vaulted Mandan (11-3) from No. 5 to No.
Tuesday night, St. Mary's put the clamps on Jamestown, limiting the Blue Jays to 39 points in a 20-point home victory, 59-39. "We take pride in our defense. We know if we come out and play as a team defensively we'll have a chance to win every night," said 6-foot-1 senior Tonya Dvorak, one of three Saints with four steals in the game. "Everybody on our team is really focused on defense. We just want to come out every game and make it hard for the other team to score. "They've done that.
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".
