You lose in double overtime, it’s easy to think you lost a coin flip. You basically did, except the Penn Quakers, coach and players, were willing to look at how Monday night’s Palestra thriller became a 50-minute game controlled by La Salle in the last extra period and won by the Explorers, 75-71. The stat sheet tells you that in one important aspect, the game was won and also was lost at the foul line — La Salle made 21 of 26 free throws, Penn hitting just 16 of 25.
Omari Spellman will remember the first half of his first college game for being … pretty much unmemorable. Starting at center for Villanova Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center against Columbia, Spellman did nothing embarrassing. There was no tripping over his own feet. He just didn’t do enough of anything. Just kind of out there.
LEXINGTON, Ky. — This is what Quade Green wanted, the big spotlight, the big time. He wanted Tim Barker, a Kentucky fan since ’66 who had made the Blue-White scrimmage the week before and was at Rupp Arena early for this exhibition against a Division III school, sitting in the upper deck bleachers. “Never miss a game,” Barker said before Green’s first Rupp appearance against outside competition. He meant on television or live.
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".
