The West Virginia Mountaineers are preparing to take on Murray State in the NCAA Tournament, but they’re having to deal with some outside distractions courtesy of guard D’Angelo Hunter’s father. Hunter is a junior who has played sparingly this season, averaging 5.8 minutes a game and appearing in 18 games total. He transferred from Navarro College in Texas in the offseason. His dad took to Twitter and voiced his displeasure with how Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers’ coaches are handling his son.
Both the Oklahoma men’s and women’s basketball teams were on the bubble, and both earned their way into the NCAA Tournament. The Oklahoma women are a 12-seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Sooners will take on 5-seed DePaul in College Station, Tex., at 11 a.m. CT on Friday, March 16. The two teams have already played once this season, with DePaul winning 111-108 in overtime in the second game of the season. As you can see, the players were very fired up to make the field of 68.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders strengthened their defense with the addition of graduate transfer Preston Gordon from Rice on Saturday. The defensive tackle announced his decision to transfer to Texas Tech on Twitter. “After a great talk with Coach [Kliff] Kingsbury, Coach [David] Gibbs and Coach [Terrance] Jamison, I have decided to commit to Texas Tech as a grad transfer,” Gordon wrote. He also took a visit to Kansas and was talking to TCU, Alabama and Syracuse, among others.
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".
