Virtually everyone sitting courtside for this weekend’s NCAA Tournament games at Viejas Arena — players, coaches, assistant coaches, student managers, trainers, everyone — deposited themselves in folding chairs on either side of the scorer’s table. Then there was West Virginia coach Bob Huggins. Not just any stool. A four-legged wooden stool branded with a yellow WV logo on the blue cushion.
USD sophomore left-hander Chris Murphy was at his best in Saturday night’s game against Santa Clara. The Toreros needed it in the worst way. USD came into its West Coast Conference opener having lost five of six games, then fell Friday night 13-2 to the Broncos. If a bounce-back game was ever needed, this was it. Murphy provided it by allowing only one hit with 14 strikeouts — two off the school’s single-game record — over eight-plus innings in an 8-2 victory.
College baseball lost one of its all-time greats on Thursday morning when Augie Garrido died at age 79 in Newport Beach, five days after suffering a stroke. Garrido won an NCAA record 1,975 games over his 48-year coaching career, taking 15 teams to the College World Series and winning five national champioships. He won titles at both Cal State Fullerton and Texas, making him one of only two men — Andy Lopez with Pepperdine and Arizona is the other — to win the CWS at two different schools.
UMBC forward Nolan Gerrity compares No. 16 seed's epic victory over No. 1 seed Virginia to a popular online game: “It’s like your first Fortnite victory, honestly.” Thought it was a Wimbledon reference before Google search. OK, I'm hip (well, not really). https://t.co/mzsnvaRwp4
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".
