Furman and East Tennessee State will square off Thursday night at Timmons Arena in a game most around the league have circled on their calendars, as it will go a long way in deciding the Southern Conference regular-season title in 2017-18. The two teams will be facing off on the college basketball hardwood for the 55th time, with the Bucs holding a narrow 28-26 lead in the all-time series.
Thursday night, East Tennessee State took a 68-58 win over UNC Greensboro in a rematch of the 2017 Southern Conference championship game. For all intents and purposes, that game was a statement by the Buccaneers, who dropped both regular-season games to the Spartans last year. With that hard-fought win in what was a defensive slug-fest for most of the night, it was the big men for the Bucs that had the final say in how things went down at Freedom Hall.
Furman closed the game on a 24-12 run, with Daniel Fowler scoring 11 of his team-high 21 points during the stretch, to earn a 74-71 win over Mercer on Saturday. With the win, Furman improved to 12-4 overall and 3-0 in Southern Conference play, while Mercer dropped to 7-8 overall and 0-2 in league play. Fowler’s 21 points are his season-high, and he earned it on 6-11 shooting from the field, including 3-7 from beyond the arc.
@newsfromitaly@TheEconomist I think that is a very important point. Note that the ECB report before Christmas, while accepting that the debt was falling, said it was doing so "slowly". That could easily reverse under an irresponsible or inexperienced government.
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".
