“Who’s your favorite player?” Sindarius Thornwell had a likeable crowd before him late Saturday evening. Roughly 30 minutes had passed since the Los Angeles Clippers lost their eighth consecutive game, but defeats are easier to swallow when familiar faces and colors are there to greet you afterward. They came in both garnet and black, some from his hometown of Lancaster, others from Columbia and a majority situated right here in the Queen City.
CONWAY -- South Carolina's men’s basketball team woke up from a slow start to eventually ease by Western Michigan 79-66 on Sunday in the HTC Center. The Gamecocks (4-1), down by as many as 11 in the first half, opened the second half on a 19-5 run. The victory awards Carolina fifth place in this relocated Puerto Rico Tip-Off tournament. USC next travels to Florida International on Nov. 27. The story will be updated.
Maik Kotsar hit a layup, Chris Silva drilled a 3-pointer and Hassani Gravett popped a mid-range jumper. The South Carolina basketball team, less than two minutes into its Friday game against UTEP, hardly resembled the Gamecocks from 24 hours earlier. And Frank Martin, dressed in a resort-style white shirt and garnet pants, looked like a genius. “It makes the coach look a lot smarter than he is when you’re making shots,” Martin said.
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".
