On the Naz Reid dunk from an ally-oop pass provided by fellow senior Ithiel Horton, the Roselle Catholic boys’ basketball team is preparing to compete in the Tournament of Champions for the fourth time in the past six seasons. The Lions led by five at the half, but trailed in the fourth quarter before coming back to defeat Ranney 63-61 in Saturday night’s (March 10) boys’ basketball Non-Public, B state championship game at RWJ Barnabas Health Arena in Toms River.
Of the 36 basketball teams that qualified for state tournament competition in Union County – 18 boys’ and 18 girls’ squads – only three made it to Week No. 2. They include the Roselle Catholic and Linden boys’ reaching their sectional finals and the Oak Knoll girls’ advancing to their sectional semifinals. The Roselle Catholic boys’, winners of eight straight and 11 of 12, are back in a sectional final for the fifth time in the past six seasons.
RAHWAY – Luke Valerano took it upon himself to make sure Colonia was not headed to overtime for a second straight state tournament contest. So after Rahway senior Keyshawn Cummings tied the game for the fifth and final time – and for the first time since late in the second quarter – with a free throw with 15.1 seconds left, Valerano decided to take the game into his own hands.
Five schools lost the boys' BKB Tournament of Champions final in consecutive years: Shawnee (1995, 1996), Seton Hall Prep (1997, 1998), Shabazz (2001, 2002), Science Park (2008, 2009) and Plainfield (2011, 2012). Don Bosco Prep will attempt not to become the 6th school on Sunday.
Union County has a team in the boys' basketball Tournament of Champions final for the fourth straight year and for the eighth time in the past 10 tournaments (2009-2018) - St. Patrick (2009, 2017)), Plainfield (2011, 2012), Roselle Catholic (2013, 2015, 2018), Linden (2016).
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".
