READING – La Salle is about a 90-minute bus ride from here. Yet Thanksgiving Eve at this city’s showcase, Santander Arena, was a home game for the Hurricanes. Or, more to the point, a reason for fans of Reading High School to care. And a homecoming for 6-foot-5 guard Lonnie Walker IV, one of the nation’s top recruits, who led the Red Knights to their first state title last March.
Penn State won’t get the chance to defend its Big Ten title in Indianapolis on Dec. 2. Instead, the final will match Ohio State and Wisconsin. Yet with a win next week in the regular-season finale at Maryland (4-7, 2-6), the Nittany Lions (9-2, 6-2) could do something for the first time since 2008 and ’09 — reach double-digit victories in back-to-back seasons. On Saturday, they beat visiting Nebraska (4-7, 3-5), 56-44. It was 42-10 at the half.
What happened in the rain Saturday afternoon at Villanova Stadium can’t erase all the things that happened to the Wildcats this season. But it sure will make that Thanksgiving meal taste better. That’s what winning your rivalry game does for a program. Especially when you do it for the sixth straight year, and 11th time in the last 12 meetings. The Wildcats hadn’t won since the first week of October. In their four losses since then, they’d scored 28 points.
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".
