Our summer preview series of the Northeast Conference rolls on. This week, we look at the Wagner Seahawks, led by head coach is Bashir Mason. How Wagner fared last year: Wagner finished third overall in the NEC and fell in the conference tournament to Saint Francis PA, 71-70. The Seahawks finished 16-14 overall, and 11-7 in conference play. Their high point was an opening-night upset over then-18th-ranked Connecticut. Wagner’s offseason has consisted mainly of the dramatic saga of Corey Henson.
With the college basketball season about four months away, it seems like the right time to take an in-depth look at each Northeast Conference team and try to assess how each will stack up within the conference. First up, it’s the Saint Francis University Red Flash out of Loretto Pennsylvania, coached by Rob Krimmel. The Red Flash made an impressive run to the NEC championship game, where they fell 71-61 to Mount St. Mary’s.
ESPN.com’s Myron Medcalf recently released two articles about Division I college basketball across the country: one on the most challenging job in each state, and another on the best job in each state. So, I thought it’d be cool to come up with the best mid-major program in all 50 states. Some states were easier to figure out than others, so if you have any disagreements just comment or tweet it to us (we already know you’ll tweet at us and destroy our mentions).
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
