The Southwestern Piasa Birds took a break from the Litchfield Tournament on Tuesday night to travel the opposite direction on Route 16. Coming off a tourney victory over Nokomis on Monday, the Birds were unable to go back-to-back and spoil Calhoun’s home opener in Hardin. The Warriors got 19 points from Junie Zirkelbach and pulled away in the second half to beat the Birds 46-30 at Ringhausen Gym. Calhoun, under new coach Mark Hillen, improves to 2-2.
Two old rivals finalized a rare date for the semifinals of the Metro East Lutheran Thanksgiving Turkey Tip-Off Classic on Tuesday night. After top-seeded Marquette Catholic pounded Marissa 59-32 in one boys basketball quarterfinal, Southwestern knocked off No. 4 seed Madison 56-46 in another at Hooks Gym in Edwardsville. The Explorers and Piasa Birds, who have played just once since Marquette was expelled from the South Central Conference in 2012, meet in a semifinal at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
EDWARDSVILLE – The Ramblers’ 29-28 overtime victory from a Week 2 matchup in 2014 was all the history connecting the Loyola Academy to Edwardsville Tigers football. But Loyola coach John Holecek had certain expectations for his team’s first visit to Edwardsville. “A well-coached, tough, physical, nasty team,” Holecek said of the Tigers, “that plays football the old-fashioned way.”The Tigers delivered all those traits on a cold, rainy Saturday afternoon at the District 7 Sports Complex.
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".
