Editor’s note: This summer, Star columnist Greg Hansen is counting down the top 10 of just about everything related to Tucson sports.Today’s list: the top 10 winning streaks in Tucson sports history. Arizona’s 81-game basketball winning streak at Bear Down Gym has been handed down from generation to generation as something of a mythical dimension. From December 1945 until December 1952, the Wildcats never lost at the old gymnasium.
This is the sugarcoated version of Arizona’s exit from the 2017 softball season:The Wildcats and their coaches goofed up and everybody cried for a long time.If someone from Hollywood had filmed the sunset scene at Hillenbrand Stadium on Sunday, it would’ve been cut. It was too sad. No audience would’ve believed the end to a softball season could hurt so much.Baylor coach Glenn Moore, who was wearing a just-out-of-the-box OKC BOUND cap, put it in fighting terms. “It was a war,” he said.
I met Rudy Castro the day Arizona’s 71-game McKale Center winning streak was broken by UCLA, 1992. I’d heard many things about Rudy — a Marine, a politician, a baseball coach and a math teacher — and what I didn’t know he filled in.He said he had been part of a longer winning streak, and a few other things. "I played at Bear Down Gym the day Arizona won its 80th straight game in 1951," he said. "I played basketball for and against Arizona, and made the winning shot to beat them one night.
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".
