Sol could get East's No. 2 spot

8/12/2001

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Elena Baranova scored 19 points and Debbie
Black added 15 points and six steals as the Miami Sol beat the
Orlando Miracle 75-64 on Saturday night.

Sheri Sam also had 15 points and five assists for Miami (20-11),
which has won five straight games to move into position for the No.
2 spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

New York also is 20-11, but Miami holds the tiebreaker with a
2-1 edge in head-to-head meetings. Both teams have one game
remaining in the regular season.

Miami won despite setting a WNBA record for fewest rebounds in
one game with 13, one less than New York had at Charlotte on July
30, 1999.

Shannon Johnson led Orlando (12-19) with 16 points.
