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 and seven rebounds 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 the game and scored the first basket, went to the bench and suddenly collapsed. Coach Jeff Walz and his staff rushed to her aid and EMS was immediately called to the bench.
Slaughter was transported to the 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 their double-digit lead.
Kenzie Williams scored 13 points and Tyonna Snow added 12 to lead Missouri State (1-5), which lost its fourth straight.
