COACH Chris Mellor was disappointed with Bradford Dragons' performance as they fell to their second defeat of 2018, going down 80-69 at Loughborough Student Riders in Division One of the National Basketball League. In only their second season in the top flight, Loughborough are currently second – only two points behind leaders Team Solent Kestrels but with two games in hand.
BRADFORD Dragons were beaten 90-79 as they resumed their National League Division One campaign on the wrong foot at Derby Trailblazers. The teams had previously met at the Dragons Den in October, when Bradford took the spoils 91-83 in the National Cup only to then be ousted by Loughborough Student Riders in the quarter-finals. The latest encounter saw Derby gain possession from the tip-off and score on their first offence, Simeon Esprit sinking two points.
BRADFORD Dragons completed the first half of their 2017-18 season with a 79-73 victory in a War of the Roses clash at Lancashire Spinners. The hosts, who are rebuilding, had lost all ten matches prior to facing the Dragons, although a second-half recovery almost rewarded them with their first points of the season. The Lancashire side have been boosted in recent weeks by the addition of Harold Trobo, Oliver Ladlow and Allie Fullah, the latter signing only being announced on the morning of the game.
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".
