Louisville star out. Louisville starting guard Antonita Slaughter will miss the rest of the season after she was diagnosed with a blood clot in her lung.
Doctors determined the senior had a cardiac event when she collapsed while on the bench early in Tuesday night's victory against Missouri State, coach Jeff Walz said at a news conference Friday. The clot was discovered during several days of testing.
The 6-foot-1 Slaughter will immediately begin taking blood thinners. The treatments typically last six or seven months, and competition is prohibited.
