Coming off two tough losses, the UCSB women’s volleyball team is headed to Honolulu, Hawaii this Friday to take on the Rainbow Warriors, who will be looking to defend their Big West championship title and currently stand undefeated in Big West conference play.
Despite coming home for its time this season, the UCSB women’s volleyball team struggled in its annual Thunderdome Classic, dropping all three of its matches to opponents Yale, No.19 USC, and Arkansas. The Gauchos are now 0-9 early this season but have yet to participate in Big West Conference play which is set to begin on Friday, September 22. The nine-game losing streak is also the longest UCSB has suffered since 2015 when it lost 11 straight matches after starting the season 4-1.
Standing at 6’6”, 265, there is hardly any doubt that junior first baseman Austin Bush has the size to translate his hard-hitting power to the next level. And, after hitting a program-best 20 home runs this season, there is little doubt as to why Bush earns this year’s Nexus Sports Player of the Year award. Despite the UCSB baseball team struggling as a whole this year, there was always one thing you could count on every series: a Bush home run.
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".
