#7 UofL women win, Slaughter collapses

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Shoni Schimmel scored 14 points, Bria Smith added 12 and No. 7 Louisville cruised to a 91-49 victory over Missouri State on Tuesday night.
Asia Taylor added 10 points for the Cardinals (8-1), who played most of the game without senior guard Antonita Slaughter after she collapsed and was taken off the court on a stretcher early in the first half.
Louisville was leading 7-2 with 17:13 to play in the first half when Slaughter, who had started, went to the bench and suddenly collapsed. EMS was immediately called and Slaughter was transported to a hospital by ambulance. A Louisville spokesman said Slaughter was awake and alert and undergoing tests.
Louisville used a 15-4 run that included three 3s from Schimmel to boost its lead to 24-8, and the Cardinals continued to bolster double-digit lead.
Kenzie Williams scored 13 points and Tyonna Snow added 12 to lead Missouri State (1-5).
