Louisville guard Antonita Slaughter, who collapsed near the bench early in the first half of last night's home game against Missouri State, remains hospitalized but is reportedly in good spirits and surrounded by family.
U of L offered the following update on her status 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.
Slaughter, a former star at Christian Academy of Louisville, came into last night's game averaging just under 10 points per game. The senior was U of L's third leading scorer last season, and has amassed over 1,000 points for her Cardinal career.
