"The players are definitely a little in shock right now," he said. "I'm really excited for when Antonita can rejoin us. I really do believe when our teammates get the opportunity to see her, and see the smile . . . when they can see that, it will give a little bit of comfort to them."
"My teammates always have confidence in me. I've been on a little streak where I haven't hit any, but they just keep encouraging me, and I showed them that I could do it," said Slaughter, who played 25 minutes. "I'm feeling great. ... I'm getting there."
