It is on the T-shirts worn by the 120-odd kids at his free basketball camp. On the counselor’s red polos. On the banner hanging from the ceiling of the Lincoln High gymnasium. On the flyer promoting the event. On the Internet notifications. On the posters, front and center, above his name, with quotations around it. The expression was coined by Norman Powell and his friends while at Lincoln High, while winning a state basketball title.
Four summers ago, following his rookie season with the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, San Diego State alum Jamaal Franklin started a one-day free basketball camp in the High Desert, the forgotten community bisected by cars whizzing between Los Angeles and Las Vegas on Interstate 15. “It might help a kid take basketball more serious,” Franklin said at the time. Apparently it did.
The fall semester begins next week for roughly 5,000 incoming freshmen at San Diego State. SDSU’s basketball team received a late but potentially program-altering commitment Monday morning from Matt Mitchell Jr., a 6-foot-6, 225-pound wing from Roosevelt High outside Corona who consistently has been among the nation’s best players in the spring and summer AAU circuit. “I would like to thank everyone who was involved in my recruiting process,” Mitchell said on twitter Monday morning.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
