Three-quarters of the way through Monday night’s showdown between Kansas and West Virginia, it at last appeared safe to predict that this would be the year the field would dethrone the perennial Big 12 champion Jayhawks. Then Kansas rose up and erased a double-digit deficit, West Virginia wilted on its own home floor and now it’s hard to know what to think again. A 71-66 road victory over the sixth-ranked Mountaineers has Kansas in a familiar position, alone atop the Big 12 standings.
For the first 32 minutes of Monday’s night’s game at Miami, Duke was an error-prone, turnover-plagued mess. Then the Blue Devils delivered a devastating finishing kick that more than atoned for their previous mistakes. When the final horn sounded, Duke had emerged with an 83-75 victory in a game that appeared all but lost just minutes earlier.
In addition to suffering its first Big 12 loss at eighth-ranked Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon, second-ranked West Virginia endured one final insult on the way off the court. Some of the Mountaineers couldn’t escape the floor in time to avoid being caught up in the tidal wave of Red Raiders fans who flooded the court after their team’s 72-71 victory.
@cwpayton Point is that this is an unusually flawed roster for Kansas. No projected first-round picks, few shot creators and minimal interior depth, at least until De Sousa becomes a reliable presence.
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".
