St. John’s coach Chris Mullin knows the post isn’t what it once was in college basketball. “I’m not sure there’s a low post scorer on the face of the earth anymore,” he said Thursday. Mullin will rely on his pair of guards to get to the rim and make things happen this season. Shamorie Ponds and Marcus LoVett are back as sophomores for the Red Storm, and they will lead the team into its season opener Friday night when New Orleans comes to Carnesecca Arena.
THE FATE OF FOOTBALL: Part 3 of 4Jim Brown, the retired NFL running back, reaches for a wooden pulpit with his left hand as he holds a black metal walking cane in his right. He gains a grip and pulls himself up from a chair inside The Priory, a brownstone with stained-glass windows on West Market St. in Newark. It is a half-century since a summer's unrest seized the city; artwork in the room reflects urban revitalization. Brown is 81, a graybeard in town for a graduation.
There is a bearded coach on the Seton Hall sideline inside Walsh Gymnasium. A white banner stitched with the blue surnames and numbers of the 1989 NCAA West Region championship team hangs on the wall. Elements of the past surround the present as Khadeen Carrington, the current point guard, pushes the ball up court. He gets his Pirates going against La Salle’s Explorers in a game to benefit Puerto Rico’s hurricane victims. Break after break, assists come on a school night.
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".
