MORGANTOWN — The University High boys’ basketball squad trades 3-point attempts during a mid-afternoon practice Nov. 20 when a shrill whistle fills the gymnasium. The boys stop and turn towards the center of the gym. “Can someone tell me what a good shot is?” asked UHS head coach Joe Schmidle. He does not receive an answer. “A good shot is an open shot with no one closer to the basket, or an open shot that’s in your range,” Schmidle said.
MORGANTOWN — Capital freshman K.J. Taylor took the opening kick return 89 yards for a touchdown, and the No. 6 Cougars (9-3) never looked back. The score was the first of seven for Capital on Nov. 17 at Mylan Pharmaceuticals Stadium as the Cougars defeated previously unbeaten University (11-1), 48-24, in the WVSSAC Class AAA football quarterfinals. The Cougars outpaced the Hawks on offense by 86 yards and won the turnover battle by two.
The Lightning has rolled through the typically-tough West Coast trip, beating the Sharks and Kings by a combined score of 10-3. Those are two stingy defensive teams, and Tampa Bay dominated them. "I don't ever remember us coming out here and playing this well," wing Alex Killorn said. The key has been the Lightning using its speed, in both the rush and forecheck, to thwart bigger teams. That'll be the focus tonight against the Ducks, the last team to beat Tampa Bay in regulation (4-1 on Oct. 28).
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".
