Actress and singer Nell Carter guest stars on UPN's "Sparks" as the mother of a high school basketball whiz who may be headed straight for the NBA. In the spisode, attorney Maxey Sparks (Miguel A. Nunez Jr., pictured with Carter, left photo) uses his masculine wiles on the mother in hopes of representing the young would-be superstar. What Maxey doesn't know, is that he is also being used to entice her admirer (watching from afar) into making a commitment. The series also stars (clockwise from from, right photo): James Avery, Robin Givens and Terrence Howard (pictured with Carter and Nunez). This episode of "Sparks" airs MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24 (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT) on UPN.
