We’ve seen a handful of shocking upsets through the first two days of the NCAA tournament, which was capped by a historic win by 16-seed UMBC over No. 1 overall seed Virginia – a result that destroyed even the hardiest of brackets. Prior to UMBC knocking off the Cavaliers, a total of 25 perfect brackets remained across the major bracket game sites – including ESPN, Yahoo! and CBS Sports – according to NCAA.com. Every single one of those brackets had Virginia advancing.
Virginia entered the NCAA tournament as the No. 1 overall seed and as the ACC Champions, but the Cavaliers season will ultimately be remembered for Friday night’s shocking and historic loss to 16-seed UMBC. In his press conference after the game, coach Tony Bennett saluted UMBC on the victory, and explained how he’ll personally remember Virginia’s season. “You’ll remember this. It will sting. Maybe a 1 seed will get beat again, maybe not. Maybe we’ll be the only No. 1 seed to ever lose. It’s life.
Eight teams will advance to the Sweet 16 of the 2018 NCAA tournament on Saturday, but after UMBC’s historic upset of overall top seed Virginia Friday night, no favorite is safe. If you’re planning on spending the entire day watching college hoops, here’s your schedule:You will be able to stream every game at NCAA.com or through the March Madness app, but you’ll need to provide a cable login following a free three-hour preview.
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".
