Members of Tustin’s boys basketball program and head coach Ringo Bossenmeyer are grieving following the death of 2013 Tustin High graduate and former varsity basketball player Bret Taj McKinney, who died on Monday, Jan. 1 in a traffic accident in Corona. McKinney, 22, a popular and hard working member of the 2013 squad, was remembered fondly by former teammates, coaches and family members before Friday’s game with Kennedy.
NEWPORT BEACH – It’s early in the Pacific Coast League race, but Northwood’s boys basketball team took another major step Tuesday night in its quest to eventually capture the league title. The No. 5 Timberwolves knocked off defending league champion Corona del Mar 59-51 at CdM to improve their league mark to 3-0. Northwood (16-4 overall) defeated University 73-44 Friday night. CdM and University are expected to give Northwood its biggest challenges in league play.
University’s girls basketball team led from the start and went on to capture a 59-38 Pacific Coast League victory over Northwood Friday, Jan. 12, at Northwood. The Trojans (14-5, 2-0) led 17-4 after one quarter and held a 34-14 halftime lead. The Trojans, with an 8-2 run at the start of the third quarter, moved out to a 42-16 lead to start the second half. “We came out ready to play,” said University Coach Nicole Bradshaw.
A reminder that all the girls and boys basketball games in the PCL this week are on Thursday, Jan. 18 this week instead of Friday because it is finals week in Irvine. Woodbridge meets Uni for first place in the girls game Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Uni.
Devin Owens of Northwood scores two of his 16 points off a steal in the Timberwolves 59-51 victory over Corona del Mar Tuesday night. Shandon Sharifi (No. 10) got the steal and assist. https://t.co/MIF4TRvui2
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".
