CHARLOTTE — The whistle to stop play had already blown, so just for fun, Jarius Lyles tossed up a ridiculously high-arcing shot toward the basket. By this point, the greatest upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament was essentially complete. Lyles and his 16-seed UMBC teammates had a healthy — maybe stunning is a better word — lead on No. 1 overall seed Virginia, and the clock was in its last gasps before the celebration was going to begin. So Lyles tossed the shot up there. Why not, right?
CHARLOTTE — A loose basketball found its way to De'Andre Hunter, and he couldn't help himself. The Virginia freshman picked it up with his one good hand, and in one motion launched a 3-pointer from his spot near the baseline during Thursday's shootaround. "Bank!" he yelled, almost as soon as the shot left his fingers. Seems that one-handed shots are not the specialty of a basketball player who has spent his life using both hands and proper technique.
CHARLOTTE — Texas A&M was rolling. As the clock closed under the four-minute mark in the physical, hard-fought NCAA Tournament opener Friday against 10-seed Providence, the seventh-seeded Aggies had finally started to create much-needed breathing room on the scoreboard. Admon Gilder scored on a layup, Robert Williams III hit a short jumper and Tyler Davis scored inside. A one-point lead was suddenly seven, and the A&M faithful at the Spectrum Center were as loud as they'd been all game.
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".
