In his three-year run as girls’ basketball coach at Newton South, Joe Rogers has discovered just how difficult the Division 1 South tournament is on a yearly basis. In 2015, as the fourth seed, the Lions were bounced in the semifinals by Braintree, the eventual state champion. In 2016, third-seeded South was denied by Mansfield in the quarters. And last season, the No. 6 Lions fell again to Braintree, the state finalist, in the semis.
With 52.5 seconds left in Boston University’s 81-65 win over Lafayette on Tuesday night at Case Gym, freshmen guards Javante McCoy and Walter Whyte were sitting side-by-side on the bench next to the coaching staff. Not because they were getting direction, but as reward for a remarkable effort in snapping a five game skid.
MALDEN — With her effortless 3 from the top of the key that swished through the net with 52.1 seconds remaining in the first half Tuesday night, Mystic Valley senior Menel Lamadzema joined elite company. The 5-foot-6-inch guard from Everett became the 71st high school player — boy or girl — to reach 2,000 points in the state.
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".
