LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville starting guard Antonita Slaughter will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a blood clot in her lung.

Coach Jeff Walz said during a news conference Friday that doctors determined Slaughter, a senior, had a cardiac event when she collapsed while on the bench early in Tuesday night's victory against Missouri State. The clot was discovered during testing to find out what caused the event.

Slaughter will immediately begin taking blood thinners that will end her season. Walz says "we're very fortunate this was discovered through testing."

Slaughter scored the game's first basket in the No. 7 Cardinals' 91-49 victory. But after leaving the game with 17:13 left in the first half, she suddenly collapsed.
