CBS cuts away from conclusion of Sony Open final

CBS cut away from the dramatic conclusion of the Sony Open men’s
final on Sunday, switching to the tipoff of the NCAA tournament
game between Michigan and Florida.

Andy Murray rallied past David Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1), and the
network ended its telecast when the third set went to the
tiebreaker. Tennis Channel televised the end of the final, and CBS
later showed a replay of match point.

The match began at 11:30 a.m. and lasted 2 hours, 45 minutes,
running beyond its allotted TV time. Tournament director Adam
Barrett said CBS officials had a commitment to show the
basketball.
