MURPHY’S MORTAL – The Gophers need Jordan Murphy to turn superhuman again in a big way after his back-to-back games without a double-double for the first time since last year. Murphy’s double-double streak of 17 straight games to start the season almost seems like a distant memory after he struggled in blowout losses to Northwestern (eight points and two rebounds) and Purdue (10 points and four rebounds).
– No matter how far the Gophers dropped in the Big Ten pecking order in the last week, there was no questioning they still had enough talent to be more competitive than recent losses showed. Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer combined for 49 points in the backcourt and Jordan Murphy had 22 points and 19 rebounds to help the Gophers outlast Penn State 95-84 in overtime Monday at the Bryce Jordan Center. Mason finished with a team-high 25 points, including 11 points in the second half.
When asked to describe how much Amir Coffey means to the Gophers basketball team, Richard Pitino really couldn't find a good way to sum it up. Pitino's answer was simply: "Are we missing Amir? Yes, we're missing Amir." The injured 6-foot-8 sophomore guard is an NBA prospect and arguably Pitino's most talented player. Coffey doesn't just help the Gophers in one area. He can lead them in scoring and fill up the stat sheet on any night — and be the team's best perimeter defender.
Jordan Murphy isn’t giving up his NCAA double-double thrown anytime soon. His 22 points and 19 rebounds in #Gophers win at Penn St. gives him 18 double-doubles this season. Duke’s Marvin Bagley III has 15. @GopherMBBhttps://t.co/vw9gtq7Q7G
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".
