Keven Williams has been on local stages many times performing hip-hop and rap music. But the stage the 25-year-old from Springfield found himself on Sunday was unlike anything he had experienced. Bowling in the finals of the Go Bowling PBA 60th Anniversary Classic at Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis, Williams said he surprisingly felt few nerves as the cameras of ESPN went live.
In a disappointing and sometimes bizarre Missouri State basketball season, the Bears’ 67-63 loss to Drake on Sunday at JQH Arena might have been the topper. Mounting a furious rally following the ejection of several bench players for leaving the sideline — and standing on the brink of a memorable comeback victory — the Bears’ hearts were ripped out by Reed Timmer’s jump shot and their own missed free throws. “We should have won the game,” Bears coach Paul Lusk said.
College basketball seasons always have more ups and downs than your basic county fair thrill ride, though the Missouri State Bears’ journey like will elicit more screams than Silver Dollar City’s new Time Traveler. From being picked preseason No. 1 in the Missouri Valley Conference, to the despair of a recent five-game losing streak - during which two key reserves were lost to a bizarre cryotherapy treatment injury - it’s tested the fandom of even the most vocal supporters.
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".
