So far, playing basketball 4,300 miles from home is working out just fine for Colby Taylor. Creston’s first professional basketball player is leading his team in scoring (19.1 points per game) and rebounding (8.9 average) through 15 games in the 30-game regular season for his team in Leon, Spain. He has the most 3-pointers on the team, hitting 36 percent from pro distance at 30-of-83. He’s shooting 76 percent at the free throw line (26-34).
Creston girls played strong in a heavy underdog role Thursday night, leading Class 4A second-ranked Lewis Central 11-7 behind an early eight-point outburst in the lane by 6-1 freshman center Kelsey Fields. When Panther guard Keisha Stewart drew a charge by LC senior Maegen Holt in the second quarter, it was the third foul already by the Titan all-stater averaging 22 points a game, and the Panthers were trailing by only six points (26-20).
WEST DES MOINES — On a one-hour break from his offseason job at Nike Factory Store in West Des Moines one evening last week, Ethan Westphal sat in a nearby restaurant and said he’s living the dream. It may not be THE dream of a young baseball player — the life of traveling from city to city in charter jets, staying in luxury hotels and playing in front of crowds of 40,000 fans every night.
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".
