ROMEOVILLE – Former Bolingbrook boys basketball coach Bob Mitchell posed the question before the game. “How long has it been since this place had this kind of atmosphere? Thirty years?”The atmosphere indeed was electric Wednesday night in the Romeoville gym as the state-ranked Raiders and Spartans tangled in a nonconference battle deluxe. The game officially became a sellout an hour before the tip, and hundreds of would-be watchers were turned away.
JOLIET – Something exciting is happening with the Joliet Junior College men’s basketball team. The new JJC Events Center, of course, puts a Wolves’ home game in a whole new light. But it isn’t only that. JJC (10-3) is scoring points. No greater example than Tuesday night’s 122-79 nonconference victory over Richard J. Daley College (4-8). “I like the way we shot the ball tonight,” Wolves coach Joe Kuhn said. “The 122 points is our season high, but really, we have been scoring a lot of points.
The winter weather always seems more brutal when the Joliet area is without state-ranked boys basketball teams. Bolingbrook and Romeoville are warming things up this season as both are gaining respect in virtually everyone’s poll. More than ever, high school basketball is a guard-oriented game. The guards that Spartans coach Marc Howard and Bolingbrook coach Rob Brost put on the floor at a given time are outstanding individually and as a unit.
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".
