ROCK ISLAND — The great basketball shooters know they will have nights when the ball just will not go in. What makes them great is their ability to find other ways to score points and help the team.That was a problem Rock Island's Randy Tucker had last season as a junior. When his 3-point shot wasn't going in, he could not find a fallback to keep him on the court. "I had some times when I was in a slump last year and lost my confidence to even try to shoot," Tucker said.
ROCK ISAND — When it comes time to hand out awards at the end of the basketball season, Rock Island senior Lauren Hall would be just fine if she hears her name called as "best supporting actress. "If that were to happen, Hall knows she will have done her job and the Rocky girls' basketball team will have had a great season.Understanding that senior Chrislyn Carr and junior Brea Beal are the stars of this movie, Hall is satisfied with being the player who does much of her work behind the scenes.
MONMOUTH -- Having been named United's boys' basketball coach towards the end of July 2016, Doug Dennison had a short time to get to know his new team last season.But after a bumpy inaugural season at the helm in which the Red Storm dropped 28 of 30 games, Dennison has been able to work with his players throughout an entire summer, and hopes to see the results bear fruit in the win-loss column. "This was my first full summer with the kids.
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".
