This is a mock draft, but one without the name you may expect at the top. Since Marvin Bagley Jr. announced his commitment to Duke Blue Devils on Monday night and vaulted Duke to No. 1 in CBSSports.com's Top 25 (and one), there's been a constant drumbeat about Bagley as the hands-down best prospect for the 2018 draft. ESPN called him "arguably the best prospect to come out of high school basketball since 2011." My esteemed (and usually correct) colleague Gary Parrish named Bagley the obvious No.
Can Good Grayson stick around all season? Grayson Allen 's Duke career has been one of the biggest rollercoasters in recent college hoops memory. His freshman year, Allen was the surprise Final Four hero on a national title team. His sophomore year saw Allen become one of the best players in the country, and also one of the most hated as he was involved in two tripping incidents.
News that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will undergo surgery on his right knee this weekend, and that his extraordinarily talented Blue Devils team is cancelling its trip to the Dominican Republic, was certainly jarring but not exactly a bombshell. This isn't open-heart surgery; it's a knee replacement. This isn't even close to life-threatening; it's surgery meant to help maintain an active lifestyle.
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".
