Leading from start to finish, in front of an Xcel Energy Center crowd of 17,834 comprised mostly of very loud children here for the team’s annual camp day, the Lynx surged into the All Star Game by swamping the Dallas Wings 100-74. That the Lynx – who head into the break a league-best 16-2 – beat up on Dallas is no surprise. Minnesota won its eighth straight game vs. the Wings, and have won 28 of the last 30 against this franchise, which moved to Dallas from Tulsa last summer.
The Minnesota Lynx All Star Game contingent continues to grow. The day after Seimone Augustus was added as a Western Conference reserve, forward Rebekkah Brunson was added to the game’s roster as a replacement for injured Phoenix center Brittney Griner by WNBA President Lisa Borders. Griner sustained knee and ankle injuries July 14. – along with coach Cheryl Reeve, her assistants and the team’s training crew – will be in Seattle for Saturday’s game.
Seimone Augustus is here to tell you this never gets old. The WNBA announced the reserves for Saturday's All-Star Game in Seattle on Tuesday evening. To nobody's surprise, the Lynx guard was named a reserve for the Western Conference. It marks the seventh time she has been named to an all-star team since she entered the league in 2006. Because there is no All-Star Game during Olympic seasons, that means she has been named an All-Star seven times out of a possible eight.
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".
