ESPN statement on last night

This from a spokesman with the network, who also said that the game is available for on demand replay all the time at ESPN360.com

“It was definitely and unfortunate circumstance, but per company policy we stay with live events on ESPN networks through completion. We did carry the game live on ESPN360.com and provided studio updates, alerts and cut-ins to keep fans informed. Because much of the match was missed, ESPN2 also presented a bonus re-air of the entire match at 1 a.m. ET overnight (10 p.m. PT). The game also aired as scheduled on tape-delay on ESPN Deportes at midnight ET.”
