Tony Bennett was disappointed. He had to be. Virginia was the best team in college basketball all season, but no one will remember that anymore. From now on, the 2018 Cavaliers will be known as the first No. 1 seed to ever lose to a No. 16 seed. UMBC pulled off the biggest upset in college hoops history on Friday night, walloping the ‘Hoos by 20 points. For as humiliating as this must be for Bennett, the coach handled himself with dignity in the moments after the loss. We got our butts whipped.
Virginia was the best team in college basketball all season. This was an indisputable fact for anyone who paid attention to the sport before the second week of March. The ‘Hoos were not supposed to be this good, which made their rise even more stark. UVA was originally picked to finish sixth in the ACC in the preseason. It ended up having the best season in ACC history — 20 wins in 21 tries, a regular season and conference tournament championship, an undefeated record on the road.
Auburn fans chanted “N-I-T” as Kentucky walked off the court in defeat on Feb. 14. The Wildcats had just lost their fourth straight game and were suddenly below .500 in the SEC. At that point, Kentucky looked more likely to miss the NCAA tournament all together, let alone win a national championship. Ever since, Kentucky has been one of the hottest teams in college basketball. The Wildcats advanced in the NCAA tournament on Thursday with a 70-59 win over Davidson in opening round play.
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".
