The paths were quite different, but the results were the same. First-round wins for Loyola (Chicago) and Tennessee mean that the Ramblers (29-5, 15-3 Missouri Valley) and Volunteers (26-8, 13-5 SEC) will meet in the second round Saturday in Dallas. Loyola makes its sixth NCAA Tournament appearance and first since 1985. After the thriller against Miami, Loyola now has 29 wins, which tied the school record set in 1963 when the Ramblers cut down the nets as NCAA champions.
After a First Four win over Arizona State, Syracuse will look to keep dancing Friday night in Detroit when the Orange take on TCU. The Horned Frogs (21-11, 9-9 Big 12) make their eighth NCAA tournament appearance — and the first since 1998 — while the Orange (21-13, 8-10 ACC) play their second game in three days after Wednesday’s win in Dayton. These two teams only meet for the fifth time, with Syracuse winning all four of the previous games.
The No. 8 vs. No. 9 matchup in the East Region is the epitome of this March Madness: wide-open. Just as it is often tough to differentiate between teams seeded right in the middle, this NCAA Tournament field has an unusually large number of teams poised to make a deep run and another large group talented enough to prevent that effort.
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".
