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.
