After falling short in her previous seasons, Caylin Rufus would love to see her York girls basketball team capture the title in the Thanksgiving tournament the Dukes are hosting this week. Through two games, things are looking good. One night after combining for 33 points in a win over Niles West, Danielle Dennis poured in 20 points and Rufus followed with 14 in a 72-47 victory against Downers Grove South. "We are hoping we can win the tournament this year," Rufus said.
Taking over the York girls basketball program late in the summer, new coach Brandon Collings didn't have a ton of time to implement his new systems. But if Monday's season opener was any indication, the Dukes have caught on quickly. Behind aggressive defense and an offense predicated on cuts and ball movement, York cruised to a 56-36 win over Niles West as part of the seventh annual Thanksgiving tournament the Dukes are hosting.
The first five minutes in Elmhurst on Friday night put an exclamation point on another outstanding football regular season for IC Catholic Prep. Nineteen plays into the Metro Suburban Blue championship clincher, the Knights had already scored four touchdowns in an eventual 62-7 victory over Fenton. Extending its winning streak to seven games, all of which have come via the running clock, IC improved to 8-1 on the fall as the Knights get set to begin their state title defense next week.
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".
