Slaughter added to Presbyterian College WBB Staff

Presbyterian College women’s basketball head coach, Tiffany Sardin, has announced the addition of Ivey Slaughter as her first assistant coach, officially welcoming her to the Blue Hose family.
On Friday afternoon, Slaughter – a Macon, Georgia native – arrives at PC after playing basketball at Florida State and spending time as an assistant coach at UNC Asheville.
“I am excited and honored to join the Presbyterian family!” Said Ivey Slaughter. “I’m extremely grateful to Coach Tiffany for having been given the opportunity to be a part of this staff. I am thrilled to work alongside her and continue to learn and grow as a coach. She has a great vision of success for this program and I am eager to get to work!”
Slaughter spent two seasons as an assistant coach for the UNC Asheville Bulldogs. During the 2023-24 season, she coached McKinley Brooks-Sumpter, who was an All-Conference Second Team player.
Her debut season with the Bulldogs included a memorable comeback in the opening round of the Big South Conference Tournament, rallying from a 17-point deficit to stun Winthrop 59-58. McKinley Brooks-Sumpter showcased her talent by earning a spot on the league’s All-Conference Honorable Mention team and was also recognized for her academic achievements, securing a place on the All-Academic Team. The team also showcased their defensive prowess by ranking second in the conference and 34th nationally in three-point shooting defense, limiting opponents to just 27.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc.
After graduating in 2017, Slaughter was invited by WNBA training camps with the New York Liberty and then the Las Vegas Aces in 2018 where she competed in preseason games with both teams.
She then went on to play professionally in Europe in the countries of Hungary, Latvia, and Sweden.
After playing overseas for three years she returned to her alma mater to pursue her master’s degree. Slaughter showcased her athletic ability in basketball and track, graduating with honors from Tattnall Square Academy.
During her tenure as a player at Florida State, Slaughter made significant contributions, culminating in an impressive career. She ranked second in games played and started (132), third in made free throws (372), fourth in steals (222), and fifth in both free throw attempts (513) and rebounds (912).
Slaughter recorded an impressive 21 double-doubles throughout her college career. She was a two-time member of the All-ACC Academic Team and received the Alicia Gladden Defensive Player of the Year award during her sophomore year.
“I am so excited to have Ivey joining the True Blue family.” Said Tiffany Sardin. “She’s coached in this league and played at an elite level. I can’t wait to see the lasting impact she will have on our women. Her work ethic and passion for developing young women will fit perfectly with our staff.”
