U of L updates Slaughter's condition

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville guard Antonita Slaughter is undergoing tests at a hospital on Wednesday, a day after collapsing during the game against Missouri State.

A Louisville spokesperson says Slaughter is having the medical tests. She slumped on the bench in the first half of No. 7 Louisville's 91-49 win over visiting Missouri State on Tuesday night.

The senior was taken off the court on a stretcher.

Louisville coach Jeff Walz had said Tuesday night that Slaughter, who was alert and talking at the hospital, showed no signs of feeling ill before the game.

Slaughter had started all nine games this season for Louisville, averaging 10 points and five rebounds.

The school released this statement Wednesday afternoon: Antonita Slaughter is still in the hospital undergoing tests today and tomorrow to determine what caused last night's episode. She is alert, in good spirits and surrounded by her family. We hope to have testing completed by early Thursday. Once we have results and a diagnosis, we will be holding a press conference to update everyone on Nita's condition. At this time we ask that you respect the family's privacy.
