Forward Rhonda Mapp of the Sparks has been dismissed from the WNBA and must serve a two-year suspension for violating the league's drug policy, according to a two-sentence statement issued Friday by the league's New York office. Mapp, 33, is the first player the league has ousted for a drug policy violation. She had rejoined the Sparks this season after sitting out last year because of a contract dispute. She appeared in 24 games, four of them starts, averaging 2.6 points and 2.8 rebounds.

The Sparks' lineup that confronts the Comets today in the WNBA season opener at Houston began to take shape as the final seconds ticked off in Houston's Western Conference finals-clinching victory over the Sparks last Aug. 20 at the Forum. Spark Coach Michael Cooper said as much about a week later, in an Inglewood restaurant. Cooper looked at a menu, then tossed it aside with a shake of his head. "I probably couldn't keep anything down," he said to the waitress.

The little bus vibrated with high-volume, thudding rap music as it motored across a highway and past frosty, shorn cornfields in northern Illinois. In the front seat right: Cheryl Miller, nervously chewing gum, alone with her thoughts in the music's din. The bus was taking her basketball team on a 17-mile trip to her first game as USC's head women's basketball coach. Soon, it would be Miller time for USC.

East against West. Grits vs. Glitz. No matter how you describe it, the WNBA championship series between the Sparks and the Charlotte Sting is a contrast in styles as wide as the coasts the teams play on. Charlotte Coliseum is the site for tonight's Game 1 to determine the first WNBA champion that doesn't come from Houston. At Wednesday's practice sessions, both teams said the usual things. How hard work and perseverance got them here. How they respect the opponent.

The Sparks, who had the WNBA's best regular-season record last summer at 28-4, have the last of 16 picks in the first round today of the league's richest draft. But until late Thursday afternoon, it looked as if they, with one phone call, could go from last to first, which would have given them the opportunity to draft Australia's Lauren Jackson.

Red McCombs, owner of the Minnesota Vikings, is no longer optimistic that all-pro receiver Randy Moss will agree to a new contract before next season. McCombs told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Wednesday that contract talks with Moss' agent, Dante DiTrapano, have "died down." "I doubt a deal will get done before the season starts," McCombs said. "If it doesn't get done before then, we're going to wait until the end of the season to get a deal done."
