THURSDAY

WIZARDS AT MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES

Want to feel old? This is Kevin Garnett's 11th season. Want to feel even older? Garnett considers himself old. He's 29. Guess it won't be long until we see the 6-foot-11 "Big Ticket" pushing a shuffleboard stick in Boca. [TNT, 7]

FRIDAY

FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON AT MARYLAND

The prospect of having four seniors and five juniors has Gary Williams believing that there is more unity on this year's Terps squad. "There has to be a certain level of dedication to the team," Williams said this week. It's nice to know the coach hasn't completely forgotten about John Gilchrist. [Comcast SportsNet, 8]
