City of Edinburgh Kings produced a remarkable comeback to win at Glasgow University, while women’s champions Edinburgh Kool Kats celebrated their latest league title with victory over Falkirk. Kings had won 12 of their previous 13 matches, lifting the Scottish Cup in the process, but they appeared certain to suffer a costly league defeat when they trailed the Glasgow students by seven points with only ten seconds remaining.
City of Edinburgh Kool Kats retained their Scottish women’s basketball title despite losing on Saturday and they also won the junior league, but there was disappointment for the Capital clubs as St Mirren clinched the men’s championship. Kats ran into an inspired Edinburgh University team fresh from their Scottish Cup triumph the previous weekend, and as the students stretched their unbeaten run to more than three months at Portobello High, Kats suffered only their second loss in 13 league games.
Head coach Bart Sengers praised his Caledonia Pride team and their fans after watching the Edinburgh club’s storming fightback fall fractionally short in yesterday’s Women’s British Basketball Cup Final at a packed Birmingham Arena. Contesting their first-ever final in only their second season, Pride recovered from a shaky start to push Nottingham Wildcats all the way, and they trailed by just two points with less than 25 seconds remaining before eventually going down 70-66.
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".
