Northwestern women’s basketball player Jordan Hankins died on campus Monday, the school confirmed. She was 19 years old, according to the Chicago Tribune.
“Jordan was a remarkably dynamic young woman,” coach Joe McKeown said in a statement. “This is a devastating loss for our basketball family. She brought an unwavering intensity and commitment to everything in her life. We will miss her enormously.”
Numerous reports indicated Hankins’ body was found in dormitory, and SB Nation reported later Monday night that an email to students identified Hankins as a resident of the Foster-Walker Complex, a dormitory on the Northwestern Campus.
According to Northwestern’s residential services department, there is no foul play suspected in Hankins’ death and the medical examination will provide more information later.
“We are heartbroken and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jordan Hankins,” vice president for athletics and recreation Jim Phillips said in a statement. “Our love and thoughts are with her family, teammates and friends. Jordan made a dramatic impact on our Wildcats community. Our department is solely focused on supporting those who adored her.”
Hankins, a sophomore guard from Indianapolis, averaged 3.6 points in 11 games this season for the Wildcats. According to The Daily Northwestern, she was on the pre-med track. She attended Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis.
