Something has got to give, doesn't it? Oswego coach Chad Pohlmann and his young boys basketball players would like to think so, especially after dropping a 64-54 decision Monday at home to Lincoln-Way East to cap a three-game Martin Luther King Day Showcase. It was the 11th straight loss for the Panthers (1-16), who rely heavily on three sophomore starters in 6-foot-9 center Connor McCance, 6-3 guard Jack Kahoun and 5-10 guard Cal Hejza. Most aggravating thing for Pohlmann and his team?
West Aurora stunned visiting Jacobs with an 11-0 run to open Saturday's game between league leaders that the Blackhawks eventually won 59-47. Senior Ben Young got it started with the first of his four 3-pointers in the first half for Upstate Eight Valley leader West Aurora (12-4). "They executed pretty well, made some shots, started with a few offensive rebounds and putbacks," Jacobs coach Jimmy Roberts said. "That was not good. It took a little bit for us to get the ball and get in the fight."
Coaches often preach about basketball being a four-quarter game. With a share of the Upstate Eight Valley lead on the line, South Elgin's players were provided a good example of that Friday night in a 73-55 loss to West Aurora. "We competed for three and a half quarters," Storm coach Brett Johnson said. Junior guard Drake Montgomery came up with a steal and went half the length of the court for a layup, pulling South Elgin (10-4, 2-2) within 45-43 with 1:28 remaining in the third quarter.
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".
