WEST CHESTER >> The first half was close to flawless basketball — the second was quite flawed. But the West Chester women did just enough down the stretch to hold off East Stroudsburg, 84-77, on Wednesday at Hollinger Field House, and move into sole possession of first place in the PSAC East. “We did a good enough job in that first half to build ourselves a bit of a cushion so that we had enough when they made their run in the second half,” explained WCU head coach Kiera Wooden.
WEST CHESTER >> If West Chester goes on to win the PSAC Eastern Division men’s basketball crown this winter, it will undoubtedly point to Wednesday’s first vs. second place battle with East Stroudsburg at Hollinger Field House as a turning point. Staring overtime in the face, WCU’s Frank Rokins came up with a game-saving blocked shot as time expired to preserve a high-octane 76-74 thriller that gives the Golden Rams a two-and-a-half game lead in the standings with 10 regular season games to go.
EXTON >> As a professional football player, Exton’s Matt Ryan has returned to Philadelphia to play against his childhood favorites on four previous occasions. This weekend will be number five, but his family can tell you that this one is unlike any of the others. “This one is actually very different for everybody,” said Ryan’s father, Mike. The others came during the regular season.
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".
