VERMILLION — The usual cliché doesn’t exactly apply for today’s (Saturday) football game at the DakotaDome.Just ask one of the players who will take the field in today’s 2 p.m. battle between fifth-ranked South Dakota State and No.
And Wednesday night in its league opener, it showed what it meant. The new-look Lancers — far different than the ones who had suffered two lopsided losses to Morningside a season ago — hung right with the Mustangs, but came up short 75-72 at Cimpl Arena. “We’re a much better team than we’ve had since I’ve been here, definitely,” Mount Marty senior Drew Cheskie said. That much was clear.
Unfortunately for the Mount Marty women’s basketball team, one of those quarters doomed the Lancers and the result was an 81-59 victory for No. 10-ranked Morningside. And a blistering second quarter for the Mustangs did in the Lancers (5-1) in the Great Plains Athletic Conference opener. “We played three pretty good quarters, so we know we can hang with a really good team,” said MMC sophomore guard Molly Koisti, who scored 13 points.
For the third straight year, USD's Brittany Jessen was named the Summit League Setter of the Year. She's the only athlete in league history to do that.
#NerdStat She's fifth among active Division I setters with 4,725 career assists.
Two days after USD made the same announcement, Wagner College (New York) announced today it is adding women's triathlon.
Wagner becomes the 21st school in the country (fourth Division I) to add the sport. Goal to become a NCAA Championship sport is 40 schools by 2024.
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".
