The Miami Sol was a women's basketball team which joined the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) in 2000. They played their games at American Airlines Arena. The team folded after the 2002 season because of financial problems. They were the former sister team to the Miami Heat.
After losing to the New York Liberty in the playoffs, the Miami Sol finished the 2002 season with a 15-17 record. This season proved to be the Sol's last. Citing the inability to raise enough funds to continue operation under the WNBA's new restructuring agreement, the organization ceased operations. While the other WNBA team in Florida, the Orlando Miracle, was able to find new ownership and relocate, the WNBA dissolved the Miami Sol before the start of the 2003 season. The team finished with a franchise record of 48 wins and 48 losses.
Since the folding of the Miami Sol, former members of the team have found success elsewhere. After being reassigned to the Detroit Shock, Ruth Riley won two WNBA championships in 2003 and 2006. Betty Lennox and Sandy Brondello won a WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm in 2004, with Lennox winning the WNBA Finals Most Valuable Player award.
