Ron Rose’s Illinois Wesleyan basketball team has won six consecutive games, is ranked 18th nationally and sits atop the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin at 7-1.Still, Rose knows how he wants his Titans to improve.“The big thing for us is consistency,” said Rose, whose team faces Elmhurst on Wednesday in a 7 p.m. CCIW contest at Faganel Hall. “We’ve played with energy at the defensive end at times, but not consistently.
HEYWORTH — An 0-2 McLean County Tournament performance extended the Heyworth High School basketball team’s losing streak to five games.That disappointment also provided motivation to put the buzz back in the Hornets’ season.“We used that as fuel in practice to get better and make a push for the last few conference games so we could turn it around,” Heyworth senior forward Tate Eller said after the Hornets did just that in a 63-59 Heart of Illinois Conference victory over El Paso-Gridley.
It was a somewhat typical slow start for the Illinois State women’s basketball team Friday at Evansville, falling behind 12-6.Yet when the Redbirds rallied for a 14-12 edge through one quarter and stormed to a 31-16 advantage entering halftime, ISU was breaking new ground and heading toward its largest margin of victory in four years in a 67-43 thrashing of the Purple Aces.After dropping their first four Missouri Valley Conference games, the Redbirds have won two in a row ahead of Sunday’s 1...
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".
