Over the years, there have been plenty of occasions where a fan has hit a half-court shot at halftime to win a prize. But at Texas A&M International on Thursday night, those in attendance saw the feat accomplished on two consecutive occasions. A pair of Dustdevil baseball players each hit a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and half-court shot within the allotted 30 seconds as they each celebrated on winning the advertised grand prize of a $25,000 car.
With both teams badly in need of a victory on Thursday night, the Dustdevils women’s basketball team played host to Oklahoma Christian with both schools looking to pick up their first Heartland Conference victory. A rough first quarter put Texas A&M International in an early 13-point hole and the team could never climb back out in an 84-71 loss. TAMIU played even with the Eagles the rest of the way after the first and even won the second and third quarters.
In the middle of their first 0-3 start in school history, the Texas A&M International basketball team returned home on Thursday night squaring off in a game it really needed to win. Unfortunately for the Dustdevils, the group’s recent skid continued. TAMIU fell 62-60 to Oklahoma Christian as it remains looking for answers early on in the Heartland Conference schedule. The Dustdevils extended their worst-ever conference start to 0-4.
Newman's Kevin Bryant takes the lead with a layup, draws a charge on the other end. Jets turn over on inbound but TAMIU cant score as teams fight for ball under basket as time expires.
2ND HALF, 0:52, BASKETBALL
Back and forth we go. Wright ties with a 3, then NU's Akao hits a triple. Robinson ties with three-pt play, then NU goes ahead on a layup. Dustdevils back on offense late
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".
