Outlook: The class of 2017 did all of the "dirty work" last winter for Bridgewater-Raritan as they were a tight knit group that played very well together. Questions about this year's team include where will the defense, the passing, the rebounding and team leadership come from? Aaron Gao and Sterling White can score, but are they and the rest of the class of 2018 ready to do all the little things behind the scenes that contribute to a winning team?
The Rutgers Prep School's boys basketball team has undergone a number of changes since last season, but the core values and goals remain the same. After a season in which the Argonauts advanced to the Somerset County Tournament final, head coach Alex Mahony stepped down after three years and six seniors were lost to graduation. In May, Matt Bloom was hired to take over the program after spending six seasons as the director of men's basketball operations at La Salle University.
After a volatile offseason, the St. Joseph (Met.) basketball team is ready to move forward and put the past behind them. The Falcons completely overhauled their coaching staff after Hall of Fame head coach Dave Turco was not rehired in September after 12 seasons. Mike Thompson, a former player and 1982 graduate of St. Joseph, was hired to take over the program. "I got a call in September and I didn’t have anything on my mind but what I was having for dinner that night," Thompson said.
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".
