Antonita Slaughter Out For The Season

Stacy Revere

Antonita Slaughter will miss the rest of her senior season because of a blood clot in her lungs, U of L coach Jeff Walz announced during a press conference Friday afternoon.

The clot was discovered during tests at Jewish Hospital, where Slaughter was taken after collapsing during Louisville's home game against Missouri State Tuesday night. The clot will require the Christian Academy of Louisville product to be on a blood-thinner medication, making it impossible for her to play.

"After extensive testing they have determined she had a cardiac event, which caused the episode," Walz said. "In the process of determining the problem with her heart they found a blood clot in her lung. We're very fortunate this was discovered through testing. She will start on blood thinners immediately that will put an end to her season."

Slaughter entered Tuesday's game averaging just under 10 points per game. The senior was the third-leading scorer on U of L's national runner-up team last season, and has amassed over 1,000 points for her Cardinal career.
