Example 623, give or take a few hundred, that NBA teams draft on potential rather than performance: Duke’s Harry Giles and Kansas’ Frank Mason. Giles averaged 3.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 11.5 minutes as a freshman last season, his cameo with the Blue Devils limited by the knee ailments that have plagued him since 2013. Mason averaged 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 36.1 minutes as a senior last season.
ESPN covers production costs for ACC Network Extra games it selects and mandates a higher quality for those broadcasts. Schools pay for the bonus webcasts, which can be produced with fewer cameras, a reduced graphics package and less-experienced play-by-play talent. The webcasts should prepare Virginia for ESPN’s future ACC Network Extra demands. The 600-event minimum of this academic year grows by 125 annually until capping at 975 in 2019-20, when the average will be 65 per school.
Troy Williams played in the rarest of NBA games this season: a Golden State Warriors loss. Moreover, he started for the Memphis Grizzlies that December evening, scored 11 points and made a defensive play his grandkids will watch on YouTube. That Williams made a NBA roster, let alone two, and started 16 games as a rookie is testament to his drive, patience and belief. "When I went undrafted," he said, "I never really panicked. … I always was confident of my whole process."
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
