Is it three Big Ten wins? Is it circling the wagons to get competitive after a 1-4 start? Is it the Scarlet Knights beating who they "should" beat in Maryland and Illinois? What about beating a potential bowl team in five-win Purdue? What about the fact Rutgers, which hosts Michigan State on Saturday (4 p.m. FOX), has doubled its win total from last season? These are the things that are going to be bandied about, win or lose, on Saturday.
The Maui Invitational is among the biggest early-season stages college basketball has to offer this week, and Matt Farrell owned it. The former Point Beach star point guard helped spearhead a late rally on Wednesday evening. He scored 15 points to go along with four rebounds and four assists as Notre Dame came from as many as 16 down to win Maui, 67-66, in a stunner over Wichita State.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - King Rice didn't really need to answer too many postgame questions on Sunday afternoon after a 73-53 loss at Virginia. Monmouth University's seventh-year head coach sat down inside John Paul Jones Arena's media center and used his opening statement to provide his overarching sentiment regarding his team through four games. The Hawks, who played at Big South favorite UNC Asheville on Wednesday evening, are young and haven't been through the fire yet.
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".
