When the NBA draft began, the New Orleans Pelicans were not expected to hear their name called until the second round. Yes, there were some trades early on but none involved the Pelicans. Until the beginning of the second round when they decided to move up in the draft, swapping spots with the Charlotte Hornets to grab point guard Frank Jackson from Duke University. Jackson continued the trend of freshmen going early in the draft. In the first round, a record 16 freshmen heard their names called.
LSU's done it again under Head Coach Paul Mainieri. But, should we be surprised? The Tigers beat Arkansas 4-2 on Sunday to win the SEC championship, which is the sixth time they've done that under Mainieri. In fact, Mainieri's never lost a championship game during his time in Baton Rouge. And his Tigers seemed determined to keep that win streak in tact at the Hoover Met. Unlike LSU's first three games of the week, when they scored a combined 31 runs, the Tigers couldn't overpower Arkansas Sunday.
Hunter Hope and Jarret DeHart homered for Tulane, but USF scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to win, 7-6, in the first-round of the American Athletic Conference Championship Tuesday at Spectrum Field. Hope’s two-run homer was part of a three-run fourth inning that put the Green Wave (27-30) ahead, 3-0. After the Bulls (41-15) tied it in the bottom of the fourth, DeHart hit a three-run homer in the fifth to make the score 6-3.
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".
