Many people are wondering why CBS cut away from prayer Texas Tech had after they won against Michigan St. in the Final Four.

@CBS will be the first to show players kneeling for the anthem but immediately cut when players kneel in prayer….what a joke.

And when a malcontent kneels for the anthem they zoom in.

Oh No! Athletes taking a knee! FOR THE RIGHT REASON!

CBS literally cuts away from Texas Tech locker room minute team starts a prayer after winning in the #FinalFour, and then cut back as soon as they were done. I’m sure that was a coincidence.

@CBSSports Thanks CBS for not showing the team prayer for TT. Poor class on your part. Believe it or not they’re a whole bunch of us believers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

CBS had cameras in the Texas Tech dressing room, awaiting a huge celebration. They went away from it when they saw that all what the whole team and their staff were about to do was start their prayers. Did they feel they were about to offend their audience? Unbelievable.

CBS can’t even show a prayer. Heathen ass punks

Boy CBS was there for the wild celebration but they dropped anchor and bailed when prayer broke out. pic.twitter.com/QjSgjhYdC7

Really annoyed that CBS cut out of Texas Tech’s post-game prayer. That’s a huge part of that team’s identity.

The media won’t talk about this, but the FIRST thing @TexasTechMBB did when Coach Beard walked in was not dance and go nuts, but they knelt and prayed together. ❤️🏀❤️ Not just prayed, but took a knee, holding hands, and praising God. #LoveIt #GoRedRaiders pic.twitter.com/Q8LFjgI6GX

CBS didn’t give a reason and both sides will likely have an argument here. Those who think CBS cut away to avoid broadcasting the prayer have ample evidence to go off. It is quite odd that cameras cut out and then went right back after the prayer.
Those who think it was nothing have a little bit of evidence to go off. Ernie Johnson does mention the prayer and they do show a portion of it. This argument, however, relies on giving CBS a lot of leeway.
CBS is yet to comment on this story.
