All the fans are gone, the television cameras are packed up and the lights inside the Alaska Airlines Arena have gone dim. For those who’ve already gone home, they’re about to miss the real show. Michael Carter III may launch 100 shots. Or 200. It all depends on the day. Carter, after every Washington home game, steps back onto the court and shoots until he meets his daily goal of 500 attempts. The number itself is high. So are the amount of people on Twitter who’ve made a point of watch Carter shoot.

Michael Carter III may launch 100 shots. Or 200. It all depends on the day. Carter, after every Washington home game, steps back onto the court and shoots until he meets his daily goal of 500 attempts. Carter, a freshman point guard, says he shoots out of fear -- Not of missing a shot or two in a game.
Pondering three loose balls in the first half might not sound conventional but it makes sense to Mike Hopkins and his players. Washington (13-6, 3-3 Pac-12) came within four points — twice — late in the second half in a 70-62 loss to Utah (11-7, 3-4) at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. The Huskies’ comeback attempt was railroaded by failing to get a defensive rebound or through something else that allowed the Utes to always hold an advantage. “The way the game started, it set the tone,” Hopkins said.
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".
