WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Looking for a marquee victory in one of the Big Ten’s most hostile environments, Northwestern came up short at Purdue on Sunday. Bullied at times by the Boilermakers (8-2, 2-0 Big Ten) in the paint, the Wildcats (5-4, 1-1 Big Ten) wasted strong performances from junior center Dererk Pardon and senior guard Scottie Lindsey as they fell at Mackey Arena. Lindsey finished with 17 points and Pardon had 20, but their efforts came were not enough.
ROSEMONT — Northwestern’s leading scorer entered the team’s Big Ten opener against Illinois in an unusual position. Fresh off a trying last-second loss to Georgia Tech in which he failed to score a bucket, senior guard Scottie Lindsey started Friday’s contest on the bench. “I knew that I played a really bad game,” said Lindsey of Tuesday’s matchup.
CHAMPAIGN — File this as a no-drama November for Northwestern. The Wildcats (9-3, 7-2 Big Ten) plowed past Illinois (2-10, 0-9) 42-7 on Saturday, easing through the regular season finish line with their seventh straight victory. After three consecutive overtime wins culminating in a Nov. 4 thriller against Nebraska, NU has found gentler waters lately, winning its past three games comfortably as it closes out a banner season.
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".
