TOPEKA. Kan.-- During the (14)North Dakota St.- (3) Kansas NCAA Tournament Basketball game on Friday CBS Sports changed satellite feeds before the game had run in its entirety.

With just 33.5 seconds of game play left, a timeout was called in the final moments of the game. The University of Kansas led North Dakota by 10.

During the timeout CBS Sports decided to switch games, choosing to air final minutes of the (11)Utah State- (6)Marquette and the (9)Tennessee-(8) Oklahoma St. games.

People watching the KU game were dissappointed when CBS never switched back to the KU game after the timeout. Fans were unable to view the final seconds of the game on CBS.

WIBW thinks CBS should have aired the end of the game between KU and North Dakota. WIBW does not control which games CBS chooses to run. CBS Sports and the NCAA control game times and game broadcasts nationwide.
