Season recap: After losing to eventual national runner-up Gonzaga in last year's Sweet 16, the Mountaineers are looking to build on that success this March. Despite losing many seniors to graduation, West Virginia had two key juniors return—now-senior point guard Jevon Carter and shooting guard Daxter Miles. The Mountaineers opened their season with a loss to Texas A&M, but then rattled off 11 straight wins in nonconference play. Among those victories was a win at home against current No.
Season recap: After losing to Middle Tennessee last year in the Conference USA tournament, head coach Dan D’Antoni of Marshall had three key players from the rotation return for this season. D’Antoni, the older brother of Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni, loves to push the tempo and shoot right away like his brothers' teams, as the Thundering Herd rank fifth in KenPom’s adjusted tempo.
Duke's loss to North Carolina Saturday all but solidified their slot in second-ranked No. 2 seed, making their heir path to the national semifinals much more challenging. The Blue Devils' first round opponent, Iona, should not be taken lightly—the Gaels can push the tempo and score. Potential second round opponents Rhode Island and Oklahoma are no pushovers, either, especially with Trae Young suiting up for the Sooners.
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".
