CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon State men's soccer player Nathan Braaten heard about the Tyler Hilinski news, and his heart dropped. The junior midfielder didn’t know Hilinski, the Washington State quarterback who committed suicide Tuesday night in Pullman, but Braaten couldn’t help but wonder about what made Hilinski feel like he didn’t have any other options. “Mental health is such a tender issue, people don’t want to talk about it until it’s at its worst,” Braaten told USA TODAY Sports.
It's rare for a player to have a disastrous 12-turnover performance in his team's upset loss to an unranked Big 12 foe and then still be considered the front-runner for national player of the year. But that's how far ahead Oklahoma point guard Trae Young was from the competition, with his nation-leading averages in points (29.5) and assists (9.8).
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Like most long-limbed guards, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a bad habit of letting his man go by him in the open floor. That’s the blessing and curst of a 7-foot wingspan: sometimes, you allow yourself to get a little lazy. Gilgeous-Alexander did this a lot at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy in Chattanooga, Tenn., letting guards go by him before he’d simply reach around, tip the ball loose and sprint to the other end for an easy dunk.
@KyleTucker_SEC I totally get it. I think bad habits have a tendency to show up under pressure, and that’s what happened with him the last couple weeks. But for most part, I think he’s reasonably efficient.
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".
