The dimensions of a college basketball court are 94 feet by 50 feet. On Tuesday night against Cal Maritime, the women’s basketball squad from Holy Names University seemed to use every single last inch of them. Cal Maritime (5-5) struggled defensively against the Hawks in the first 20 minutes, in the paint as well as the perimeter. Holy Names hit seven 3-pointers in the first half to help build a 24-point lead before eventually winning 73-53 in nonleague action.
On Friday night, Dante Magnani Field consisted of wet grass as it was muddy and and slippery in the cold weather. Just like the St. Patrick-St. Vincent High football team likes it. Most high schools have ditched grass fields in recent years for ones with Field Turf, but St. Pat’s hasn’t made the switch. So when it comes to playing big games in less-than-ideal playing conditions, the Bruins are ready.
Due to the recent rainy weather in Northern California, the St. Patrick-St. Vincent High football team did not play in ideal conditions Friday night against Stellar Prep of Oakland. Dante Magnani Field consisted of wet grass, and it was cold, muddy and slippery everywhere you looked. However, for the Bruin faithful, the conditions made the scoreboard after the game look as pretty as a prom queen or a sunset at the Grand Canyon.
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".
