Florida returned to the AP Top 25 this week at No. 20, while junior guard Jalen Hudson earned SEC co-player of the week honors on Monday. The Gators (14-5, 6-1 SEC) have won seven of their last eight games and posted an 66-64 win at No. 18 Kentucky on Saturday. It was UF’s first win at Rupp Arena since 2014 and just its fourth win at Rupp since 1998. Florida was as high as No. 5 in the AP poll in early December but dropped out of the Top 25 after losing four of five games during that month.
Three observations following Florida’s 66-64 win over Kentucky at Rupp Arena:— Even though Florida was outrebounded by Kentucky 49-38, head coach Mike White felt it was one of UF’s best efforts on the boards this season. The Gators grabbed 14 offensive rebounds and stayed even with Kentucky in second-chance points (12-12). Junior center Kevarrius Hayes had his best game of the season on the boards with a season-high 9 rebounds.

With less than three weeks until Signing Day, defensive back Noah Boykin has a difficult decision on his hands. Boykin, a 6-foot-2 prospect out of Washington D.C., remains committed to the University of Maryland, but that hasn’t stopped programs from across the nation from recruiting him. He’ll announce his decision on Signing Day, a day before his 18th birthday.
Kentucky out of Top 25 for first time since 2013-14 season. Wildcats struggled early that year but made run to Final Four. However, I don't see a Julius Randle caliber player on this year's Kentucky team.
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".
