Iowa's high school boys basketball season officially tips off Monday, Nov. 27. Let's take a look at each Iowa City-area team. Bottom line: Until proven otherwise, the Trojans are the top dogs in the state and should be considered favorites to defend their Class 4A title. Bottom line: The Little Hawks return their top three scorers and will fare much better than last year’s 4-18 campaign. A .500 record should be a goal for this squad.
IOWA CITY, Ia. — News traveled fast last Friday that Iowa had offered Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson 2019 athlete Cameron Baker. The Omaha World-Herald’s Kevin White tweeted out the info, and Baker soon followed with a Twitter announcement of his own. Earlier that day, though, before extending the offer, Iowa defensive line coach Reese Morgan called Baker’s high school coach, Brant Anderson. He needed to make sure of something.
IOWA CITY, Ia. — It happens during team meetings every Sunday, Jake Gervase said: Iowa coaches whip out sheets of paper that list team goals and measure how close the team came to achieving those on Saturday. Coaches always keep track of “big plays” allowed, Gervase said. He remembers three or four of those being singled out from the Purdue loss. (Iowa’s corners are familiar with a few.) "And that ended up leading to 17 points," Iowa's senior safety said during Tuesday’s media availability.
Taking off for Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I filed the Iowa-Nebraska advance early: The WRs-DBs matchup in this game is reminiscent of Iowa-Iowa State -- and we all remember how fun that was. https://t.co/HqDkeqF27J
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".
