The Mizzou basketball program was one of the lead stories in national sports on Tuesday, and not for a good reason.The demise of Michael Porter Jr.'s college basketball career drew sympathetic reactions from across the country. One of the most electrifying talents in the country played just two minutes for the Tigers before shutting down and heading off for back surgery.Odds are, he won't play for the Tigers again. Even for hardened Mizzou basketball fans, this was tough to take.
So what happens when a locked-in NHL team hosts a squad that is strangely adrift?Entertaining 8-3 victories happen. The Blues blew out the Edmonton Oilers Tuesday night at Scottrade Center in a nationally televised game that vividly illustrated the contrasting conditions of these two teams.The Oilers were last season's breakout franchise, gaining a mind-boggling 33 points in the standings to finally return to postseason play. Many experts pegged them as legitimate Stanley Cup contenders.
OK, Cuonzo Martin, let's see you do your coaching thing.His Missouri Tigers on Monday night labored through a miserable 67-62 non-loss to Emporia State, a middling Division II team. On Tuesday they learned that superstar recruit Michael Porter Jr. will miss most or all of the remaining season after undergoing back surgery.Those back-to-back developments left TigerFan reeling. Monday's game, like the blowout loss at Utah, represented zero improvement over the dreadful Kim Anderson Era.
Blues couldn't be happier to see Tarasenko stand up for Schenn. He's really emerging as a team leader. Ah, but the fighting part . . . maybe next time he could just send a terse memo and protect his hands.
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".
