ESPN’s two World Cup Round of 16 telecasts on Sunday set a record as the highest-rated men’s World Cup matches, in any round not involving a U.S. team, on ESPN or ESPN2.

ESPN2 will televise three “NBA Free Agency Specials” beginning Tuesday, with a one-hour episode at 6 p.m. Additional 30-minute specials will air at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
