UCLA women’s volleyball needed five sets to defeat Colorado on Oct. 21. But on Thursday, the No. 18 Bruins (16-9, 9-7 Pac-12) swept the No. 24 Buffaloes (19-8, 9-7) and outhit them 0.224 to 0.129. Coach Michael Sealy said the team had been focusing on hitting well in out of system situations in practice. “I thought we did a much better job taking care of out of system setting and just better quality touches on the ball,” Sealy said after the win over Colorado.
The last time UCLA women’s volleyball faced these two top-25 teams, one match resulted in a four-set loss and the other in a five-set win. “We have nothing to lose against these teams – they are both really good teams,” said senior outside hitter Reily Buechler. “We’re just going to go in super confident. … It’s going to be fun to go after them and put some pressure on them.”No. 18 UCLA (15-8, 8-6 Pac-12) will face No. 25 Colorado (19-6, 9-5) on Thursday and No. 15 Utah (18-7, 9-5) on Friday at home.
Michael Sealy said when he first met Madeleine Gates, she seemed shy. “When she first came here, sometimes she wouldn’t make eye contact, or she’d be a little bit nervous in conversations,” said Sealy, the UCLA women’s volleyball coach. Gates may be reserved, but her performance on the court has been far from quiet. The sophomore middle blocker leads No.
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".
