The stage is set. The game is here. And thanks to Oklahoma State's upset victory over No. 6 Texas Tech in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Wednesday night, the 8th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks will take a one-game lead into their showdown with the Red Raiders on Saturday in Lubbock, Texas. But don't think for a second that the Jayhawks (22-6 overall, 11-4 Big 12) or head coach Bill Self will be looking to relax now that they have their cushion back.
During his first two games in a Kansas uniform back in mid-January, KU freshman Silvio De Sousa played sparingly, logging 11 minutes in wins over Kansas State and West Virginia and scoring two points and snagging three rebounds. That turned out to be high usage compared to the way De Sousa was used during the next three weeks.
While the perception of the vast majority of teams fluctuates throughout the college basketball season, we have reached a point where it is safe to identify Texas Tech and Kansas as the two best teams the Big 12 has to offer. Whether you have thought that for weeks or just recently reached that conclusion this sets up as one of the conference’s most anticipated weeks.
@JimmyKegin@LJWorld The principal told us that there were a couple of walkouts at LHS. One at 10 a.m. (30-40 people) and another at 11 (65-70). Also mentioned that students in several lunch periods ate in the rotunda with signs protesting gun violence & in support of the Fla. students.
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".
