Junior backup point guard Majestic Mapp was not the reason the Virginia Cavaliers whipped visiting Florida State two nights ago. Far from it. In nine minutes, Mapp contributed four points and two assists, made his only three-point attempt and committed two turnovers during an 85-72 victory. But the fact that Mapp was even available to play in his fourth consecutive game was cause for celebration for the Cavaliers. Mapp has spent the past two years battling knee injuries that appeared to end his collegiate career before it had begun.

PHILADELPHIA - Every morning after breakfast, Thomas Mapp takes a walk through the streets of West Philadelphia. Sometimes his ambling lasts an hour, sometimes two. It depends on whom he sees, what they have to say, how far his 68-year-old legs will take him. "I know everybody around here. It's like family. I love that walk," said Mapp, a retired truck driver. That is why Mapp is turning his back on an offer that Mayor John Street and others say he should take: $150,000 to walk away from his home on the long-troubled 6200 block of Osage Ave. Street says the money is a fair way of closing the book on one of the city's most difficult chapters, the 1985 MOVE bombing that destroyed 61 homes and left 11 people dead.
