One-third is better than no-thirds. The Warren boys basketball team just won a piece of the North Suburban Conference co-championship, one-third to be exact. The Blue Devils will share the title with both Stevenson and Libertyville. But they were celebrating not at one-third speed, but at full speed after their 51-40 victory over visiting Stevenson on Wednesday night. They needed the win to forge the three-way tie, and their fans seemed to understand the importance of the game.
Getting beat 1-on-1 is OK.Not all the time, but occasionally. That's the message Wauconda coach Scott Luetschwager has been trying to get across to his players lately. He wants to ramp up the Bulldogs' full-court and half-court defense ahead of the state tournament, and he says that in practice, as his team is learning how hard and how far to push, he's OK with some defensive misfires. "We've gotten on the kids to ramp up their ball pressure in practice to practice that," Luetschwager said.
Like most Chicago Sky fans, I was pulling for her. Pondexter, a Chicago native, was a high school basketball superstar here when the sport was enjoying some of its best years in popularity and quality. She had a fabulous college career at Rutgers and has been a staple among the WNBA's elite players for a decade.
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".
