Let me ask you this: What if LiAngelo's last name weren't Ball? What if we were talking about a similar UCLA freshman basketball player – one who was also not as a top-100 recruit, who was also a bit player on this year's UCLA team, who was also considered a four-year college player instead of a one-and-done player – whose name was LiAngelo Jones?
FORT MYERS, Fla. – So what got him expelled? Brandon Goodwin would rather not say. At least not on the record. And, to be honest, you can't blame him. After all, this was, what, eight years ago? Nine? Feels like a lifetime ago. At the same time, it feels like yesterday. Today Goodwin is a 22-year-old senior for a Florida Gulf Coast team that's picked to win the Atlantic Sun Conference and make its third straight NCAA Tournament one year after nearly upsetting No. 3 seed Florida State in the first round.
MINNEAPOLIS -- Sitting at 9-5 after this week's smothering of the San Antonio Spurs in their best defensive effort of the season, the revamped Minnesota Timberwolves are in third place in the stacked Western Conference one month into the season. By just about any measure, that's an unmitigated success for a team with so many new players -- Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson, Jamal Crawford -- still figuring out how to play together.
@timothy_ryerson All good, understood. My thinking is that that was an important part of him growing up. Mom talked about struggles of trying to raise him to become a man as a lesbian. I guess it is sort of mentioned only as an aside in story, which may have read weird
@michaelsokolove Scales of justice are blind...or something like that. I'm certainly against expulsion. Not sure what I think about year long suspension. Don't think it's what I'd do but I would not be up in arms
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".
