Welcome to hoops heaven, where your dedicated correspondent is reporting from the CBS Broadcast Center, on West 57th Street, the land of satellites, uplinks and downlinks, transponders, fastbreaks and trapping defenses. As the first day of CBS Sports' exclusive coverage of the NCAA Tournament moved along yesterday and last night, there were sighs of relief throughout the sprawling building that formerly was a dairy-processing plant. Neal Pilson, the president of CBS Sports, twice visited the room where TV writers were seated in front of a wall of monitors, simultaneously watching live feeds of three to four games.

Tony Petitti, who played catcher at Haverford College and was cocaptain of the baseball team for two years, was named executive vice president of CBS Sports yesterday. Petitti, 44, is handling the day-to-day operation of the network's sports department now that CBS Sports president Sean McManus also is running CBS News. The announcement hardly surprised Haverford Director of Athletics Greg Kannerstein, who coached the baseball team when Petitti played. Petitti "was such a good leader and so inspirational to the rest of the guys" that he was named captain as a junior in 1982 and again as a senior in 1983, Kannerstein said.

CBS Sports has been a busy place the past few days. Yesterday, David Kenin was named president of CBS Sports. Kenin, who worked at Channel 17 in the 1970s, had been executive vice president of programming at USA Network. He succeeds Neal Pilson, who transferred to another department. During Pilson's years as president of CBS Sports, the network lost millions on major league baseball and was outbid by Fox for the National Football League's NFC package. This week, CBS began filling its programming void.

Jim Nantz moves up, Dick Stockton moves around and Dennis Byrd moves in. These are among yesterday's announced changes in the CBS Sports lineup for NFL games this season. Nantz will work with analyst Randy Cross. Last season, Nantz was paired with Hank Stram and Cross was Stockton's partner. Rick Gentile, CBS's senior vice president of production, said Stockton and Stram will work a full schedule of games. When Nantz and Verne Lundquist are on pre-Winter Olympics assignments, Stockton will do play-by-play with Cross or Dan Fouts.

WHEN YOU do what you love for a living, 30 years can feel like a moment. After identifying her love for sports and turning it into a career in Philadelphia, Suzanne Smith worked her way up with CBS to become a sports director and the only woman directing NFL games for any of the five networks televising the NFL. Since joining CBS Sports in 1983 as a broadcast associate, Smith, now 55, served in many capacities before becoming the sports director....

The good news for auto-racing fans is that Terry Ewert, the new executive producer for CBS Sports, knows cars. Ewert grew up in San Antonio, where his father built midget race cars. After Ewert joined NBC Sports in 1978, he worked on the production end of races for years with Don Ohlmeyer. Ewert, 45, is part of the new wave that CBS Sports president Sean McManus is bringing on board as the network attempts to climb back to the prominence it held when NFL games were its brightest beam.

David Kenin, the ousted president of CBS Sports, feels like a coach who has done a good job, only to be told someone else has been chosen to take the team to the next level. Kenin did what he was hired to do 2 1/2 years ago, reviving a sports division that was almost barren of appealing programming. Now, as CBS prepares to pursue the NFL, management believes it needs a person with a stronger negotiating background. The NFL's television package expires after next season. That someone is expected to be Sean McManus, senior vice president of International Management Group's television subsidiary, Trans World International.

Under most circumstances, the naming of a new college basketball analyst by a television network wouldn't attract much attention. But there are exceptions, and this is one of them. Yesterday, CBS Sports announced that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is joining its announcing team for the remainder of the regular season and the NCAA tournament. Abdul-Jabbar, 55, is one of the most storied players in the history of basketball, a dominant center who led UCLA to three straight NCAA titles in the late 1960s and won six NBA championships with the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Andy Dane and Anthony Nelson, two 30-year-olds, took a break last Sunday from their darts game at the Perch Pub on Locust Street to nurse beers and watch some golf on TV - the John Deere Classic in Illinois on CBS Sports. "This is the worst time in Philadelphia sports since I was a kid," Nelson said with a moan. He didn't know or seem to care that Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia was televising the hapless Phils in a game against the San Francisco Giants. Two blocks away at the Misconduct Tavern was Al McLaverty, 49, one of three guys watching the local Comcast SportsNet as the Phils bumbled through the Giants game.

MILWAUKEE - Chase Utley prepared on Friday afternoon just as he does for every other game. He watched loops of video in the center of the clubhouse. He took his swings in Miller Park's indoor batting cage. Then some more hacks on the field as the hours ticked down to the start of a 3-1 loss to the Brewers. They were just fleeting moments at the beginning of another day. But they could also be some of the final images of Utley's career in Philadelphia. Trade rumors swirled this week around Utley after he cleared waivers, making it possible for him to be traded to any team as long as Utley approves.

TOM BRADLEY, who had been at Penn State forever, isn't answering any more questions about the Jerry Sandusky scandal. "I think all those questions have been answered years ago," Bradley told the Associated Press. "I'm here to help UCLA and these players be the best players they can possibly be. " The Bruins' new defensive coordinator under head coach Jim Mora still bleeds blue and white. Which you would expect from a guy who spent 32 years as an assistant to Joe Paterno. That was after playing defensive end for four seasons for the Lions.

CONNOR BARWIN, Eagles outside linebacker and booster of public transportation, clearly is one of the team's best acquisitions of recent years. He led the Eagles and made the Pro Bowl with 14 1/2 sacks in 2014. The Eagles acknowledged that success yesterday by tweaking Barwin's contract, league sources confirmed. Usually in a restructuring, the team gets more cap room - the Eagles are down to around $7 million in free space, a little more than a week into free agency - but in this case, apparently, there was no benefit to the team.

ADAM SCHEFTER, of ESPN fame, wrote it in online and on Twitter: San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh could end up with the Raiders or the Jets. An NFL source, wrote Schefter, is convinced the Raiders "are the favorite" to trade for Harbaugh, but the "Jets also known to be keeping a close eye on situation. " Just 3 years ago, Harbaugh was the Associated Press Coach of the Year. Now, he's rumored to become the first head coach to be traded since the Buccaneers acquired Jon Gruden from the Raiders in 2002.

WHEN IT COMES to fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, the Eagles defense has been among the most generous this season. In CBS Sports' scoring, they've given up the fourth most. In ESPN's, they have given up the second most. That is precisely why Aaron Rodgers owners are as pumped up this week as Hans and Franz. "These guys are very hot and they're very hot at home," Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. "Aaron Rodgers is playing as well as you've ever seen him play.

Dan Marino, the Hall of Fame quarterback for the Miami Dolphins and one of the NFL's highest-profile alums, has joined the ranks of former players suing the league over concussion-related injuries. In court filings late last week, Marino, 52, claimed that league officials had long been aware of the long-term effects of repeated hits to the head but chose to ignore those warnings and put players' health at risk. But unlike some of the more than 5,000 ex-players who have filed suit in federal court in Philadelphia, Marino did not specify any explicit condition with which he has struggled in his post-football career.

Over the last several months, officials of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Comcast Corp. secretly negotiated an unprecedented $7.75 billion contract extension to keep the Olympic Games on NBC-TV and NBC-affiliated cable networks through 2032. The new Olympics deal skipped a bidding process that, experts said, could have brought significantly higher TV rights fees for the six additional Olympic Games. But the deal also guarantees the Olympics organization billions of dollars - even if the global economy tanks, or the red-hot market for TV sports rights in the United States cools.
