Mezie Offurum dashed into the open floor, like a sprinter pushing off the starting blocks, and raised his right arm like a streaking wide receiver. This is where Georgetown Prep’s 6-foot-6 wing feels most comfortable, in the open floor, where positions don’t exist and his skill and athleticism can shine in space. This play came in the second half of a DeMatha Summer League game earlier in June, and Little Hoyas point guard Jared Bynum fed Offurum in stride.
PHILADELPHIA — In the skinny hallway overlooking Villanova’s practice court, filled by the big bodies of Division I basketball players and even bigger laughs, Pat Hart took a stream of iPhone photos. “Oh, that’ll do,” she muttered to herself, her glasses resting on the tip of her nose, as she studied a picture that was a bit blurry and had a speck of sun glare in the right corner. “Josh, come over here so I can get a better one.”One day prior, Josh Hart worked out for the Brooklyn Nets.
It was a late night for college basketball coaches across the country this past Wednesday, as they could finally be in direct contact with players in the Class of 2019. Those players will enter their junior years in the fall, and ones from across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. had their phones flooded by coaches last week. Many coaches texted right at midnight Thursday — to show their commitment — before calling in the morning. Some waited until the afternoon to get in contact.
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".
