Syracuse, N.Y. --The Syracuse University women's basketball team is hoping a record crowd comes out to watch them play Pittsburgh at the Carrier Dome on Sunday. No matter how big the crowd is at the Dome, they'll be treated to Coach Quentin Hillsman's Australian import, Tiana Mangakahia. Mangakahia, who nearly set a Syracuse record with 44 points in a game earlier this season and leads the nation in assists, is this week's guest on the Syracuse Sports Podcast.
Hardy souls in Syracuse, N.Y. used to harsh winters may chuckle at the notion of a few inches of snow keeping them away from a sporting event, but that's what happened in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday night. The AHL's Charlotte Checkers played host Wednesday to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at an empty Bojangles' Coliseum thanks to inclement weather in the area.
That's what the Syracuse University basketball team needed to do on Tuesday night at the Carrier Dome against Pittsburgh and win they did. Syracuse's 59-45 win over Pittsburgh snapped a four-game losing streak and avoided the first five-game losing streak in Jim Boeheim's tenure at Syracuse. It wasn't pretty (they rarely are for the Orange this year) as the two teams combined to shoot 36-of-91 (39 percent).
My weekly chat with Jim Boeheim coming up next on @ESPNSyracuse. The Orange are off for a week. What will the Orange focus on with a ton of practice time coming their way? And has Neil Gold put in a bid on the tossed jacket?
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".
