During the regular season, no matter how many losses St. John’s basketball racked up, it still seemed like it could beat anybody. But the optimism that filled Madison Square Garden a month ago, when the Red Storm (16-17, 4-14 Big East) upended Duke before toppling mighty Villanova in an otherwise lackluster year, gave way in Thursday’s Big East Tournament quarterfinals. Top-seeded Xavier chipped away and grew a lead that became a dominant 88-60 win at the Garden.
This year’s Big East Conference Tournament brings together an enticing combination of top teams and a season-long track record of improbable upsets. The 10-team tournament features two possible NCAA top seeds who have also dropped games to lower-standing teams. Here is a look at the matchups happening between Wednesday’s first tip and the championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. Xavier claims the first spot, edging out second-seeded Villanova by a game in the standings.
The Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament returns to the Barclays Center on Tuesday, bringing some of the best college basketball teams in the country with it. The 15-team tournament tips off Tuesday and culminates in the championship game Saturday. Here’s a look at a few teams trying to find their way through a week of nonstop basketball. Virginia has been this season’s surprise, but nobody would be shocked if the Cavaliers go all the way in Brooklyn. They’ve held the No.
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".
