FORT WORTH, Texas — Considering recent road conditions in the Mountain State, perhaps it’s more correct to say No. 6 WVU hit a pothole, rather than a bump in the road, after rising to No. 2 in the country.Yet what turned out to be a two-game Mountaineer skid doesn’t compare to that of “Big Monday” opponent TCU, which West Virginia faces at 9 p.m. at the Schollmaier Arena.After winning their first 12 games and rising to No.
MORGANTOWN — If there was one player to visit after No. 6 West Virginia’s 86-51 rout of Texas, it had to be Mountaineer junior Esa Ahmad.Yes, he scored but eight points, behind the 22 from Jevon Carter, the 19 from James “Beetle” Bolden, the 15 from Daxter Miles and the 10 and 14 rebounds of Sagaba Konate.But after his return from suspension, WVU had fallen in back-to-back games against No. 8 Texas Tech and No. 10 Kansas.
MORGANTOWN — If you break down Saturday’s 2 p.m. Big 12 matchup between Texas and No. 6 WVU at the Coliseum, you’ll see the Mountaineers have a sizable statistical advantage.The 12-6 Longhorns are overshadowed in scoring average (81.2-73.1), free throw percentage (74.8-65.4), assists per game (15.5-11.9), turnover margin (plus-7.3 to plus-1.1) and even 3-point shooting percentage (32.6-30.4).Yet while that’s sizable, what Shaka Smart’s Texas team will boast is simply size.
In case you missed this, WVU's No. 1-ranked rifle team rode a strong air rifle showing to a 4719-4704 victory at No. 5 Alaska-Fairbanks. Yes, AT Fairbanks, Alaska. My Google says that's about 4,000 miles from Motown. #big12tripsarenuthin
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".
