As the unthinkable happened, as history happened, as March happened like never before, the reactions at Spectrum Center ranged from the underdog’s bravado to the favorite’s shock and frustration to the crowd’s complete pandemonium. UMBC kept scoring against the nation’s toughest defense. Virginia kept shrinking into uncertainty. And in the background of the maddest result ever in the NCAA tournament, the mouths of onlookers opened wide and hands seemed glued to the tops of heads.
Roy Williams burst into the North Carolina locker room as only he can, full of joy and Southern chutzpah. He looked around the room and shouted orders. “Everyone to the back of the room,” the 67-year-old coach said Friday after the Tar Heels’ 84-66 victory over Lipscomb in the first round of the NCAA tournament. “I don’t care who you are. Everyone, back up.”The reaction was prompt. Players, assistant coaches, managers and reporters all moved quickly.
The black splint on De’Andre Hunter’s left wrist looks like an innocuous thing. It looks like assistance to heal from a sprain or to calm down carpal tunnel syndrome. For certain, it does not make you immediately shiver and fear this is a bad omen for another Virginia disappointment in the NCAA tournament.
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".
