Aaliyah Burras -- Brett Duke.JPG Photo by Brett Duke, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Aaliyah Burras, MH, Newman, Sr. The senior stepped up as the Greenies suffered through some early season injuries. She finished with 520 kills, 97 blocks and 43 aces for the Division IV quarterfinalists.
The 6-2 junior plays with a fierce passion -- leaping for blocks, slamming down kills and calling for the ball on the back row. It's that passion and her ability to come through in the clutch that earned her Player of the Year honors from NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. "What is great about Ellie is that she does even better in high-pressure situations," Mount Carmel coach April Hagadone said. "She wants the ball, and she can take over a game whether is it is defensively or offensively.
All that stands between Tulane and bowl eligibility is an SMU squad that is averaging 40.1 points per game. "They're a very high scoring team, so we've got to do whatever it takes to win the game, whether that's holding them down or scoring a bunch of points," Tulane coach Willie Fritz said. "A win would be huge for us. You always want to play meaningful games in November so it would be big for us." That's the challenge the Wave (5-6, 3-4) will face at 11 a.m. Saturday in its regular-season finale.
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".
