WEDNESDAY’S BEST BET ON TV

The UEFA Champions League’s round of 16 continues with Inter Milan at Manchester United. 3:30 p.m., ESPN2

NEWSMAKERS “ WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK

ALEX RODRIGUEZ

The Yankees slugger is out until early May because of hip surgery. A show of hands for people who actually care.



TERRELL OWENS

A few days after his release from Dallas, the receiver signed a one-year deal with Buffalo. A guess on his 2009 numbers - 11 touchdowns and 1,100 yards.

SEAN AVERY

The NHL’s bad boy is back with the New York Rangers. If he’s on his game, the Rangers could be a tough out if they face the Capitals in the first round.

MICHAEL VICK

For a minimum bid of $3.2 million, you can buy Vick’s mansion… and undoubtedly score an interview on “Outside the Lines” to talk about the purchase.

TIGER WOODS

Two weeks after lasting two rounds in World Match Play, Tiger makes his stroke play return at Doral. A month from the Masters, it’s time to start watching.

TWT FIVE “ BEST POTENTIAL HOOPS GAMES

1. Pittsburgh vs. Connecticut (Big East semifinals, Friday, 9:30 p.m.) - Pitt has downed UConn twice this season - the Huskies were No. 1 both times. These games are just brawls.

2. Louisville vs. Pitt/UConn (Big East championship, Saturday, 9 p.m.) - This is by far the most competitive league in the nation, and this figures to be a compelling game.

3. Kansas vs. Missouri (Big 12 championship, Saturday, 6 p.m.) - The bitter border rivals split two regular-season meetings, but the Tigers will want revenge for getting blown out in Lawrence.

4. Duke vs. North Carolina (ACC championship, Sunday, 1 p.m.) - If the Blue Devils catch fire from long range, they have a chance. But the Tar Heels have better personnel.

5. Holy Cross at American (Patriot League championship, Friday, 4:45 p.m.) - This is an actual game - the matchup is set, and AU is the area’s best hope to make the tournament.
