Sabrina Ionescu's music is as diverse as her game. The Oregon sophomore guard holds the NCAA record for most career triple-doubles, breaking the mark on Dec. 31 with the eighth triple-double of her short collegiate career. Then on Sunday she did it yet again, totaling 19 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in Oregon's victory over Utah. But ask Ionescu (pronounced "Yo-NESS-coo") to narrow down which songs might make her playlist, and it's as tough as finding a weak spot in her game.
Some things never change. Such as UConn's dominance (the Huskies are unbeaten and ranked No. 1). And Gabby Williams' go-to song. The UConn stat stuffer -- the 5-foot-11 senior forward and two-time NCAA champion is averaging 11.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists while shooting 60.4 percent from the field -- said that at some point, after years of playing the same song during her pregame prep, it became automatic. "I always, always have to listen to 'Feeling Myself' by Mac Dre," Williams said.
Kalani Brown's music choices aren't always about the beat. Lyrics resonate more than rhythm with the Baylor junior center. And the message in a song -- take, for example, Nicki Minaj's 2010 hit, "Moment 4 Life" -- is never overlooked. "It's not really about the tempo, it's all about her words," Brown says. "It's a very motivational song. Before a game, particularly in the [NCAA] tournament, you're going to have this one moment for life. It's win or go home.
Today’s unexpected gem on the DVR: The legendary Kathy Bates singing OPP (!!) & channeling Bruno Mars w/some leopard print. Of appearing on Lip Sync Battle, she said: “I didn’t even know it was on my bucket list!” Close to 30 years since her Oscar, but I’m still bowing down. https://t.co/UsCB3k7s5Z
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".
