The University of Maryland-Baltimore County — a No. 16-seed — pulled off NCAA tournament history on Friday night in its 74-54 win against Virginia, becoming the first 16-seed to knock off a No. 1-seed in the history of the tournament. While timelines were filled with shocked fans from all over the world, GIFs of golden retrievers and plenty more, there was one Twitter account that shined far above the rest.
Wichita State became one of Friday’s first big upsets in the NCAA Tournament, falling to No. 9-seed Marshall 81-75 in San Diego. The Shockers attempted to shed the “mid-major” label this past offseason when they left the Missouri Valley Conference for the American Athletic Conference. While it may have worked leading into the tournament — as the Shockers picked up a No. 4 seed in the Big Dance — one former MVC foe appears to still be a little bitter after their conference switch up.
Three years ago, Ron Hunter coached Georgia State past Baylor in the NCAA Tournament, pulling off one of the better upsets that March. Yet it wasn’t that shocking win that brought him national recognition — it was his stool. Down two seconds points to the Bears with just seconds on the clock, Hunter’s son R.J. heaved up a three at the buzzer. As it drops, Hunter can be seen in the background flying off his stool onto the ground in celebration.
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".
