Jordan Hankins, a sophomore player on Weinberg’s women’s basketball team, was found dead in her dorm room on Monday, according to university officials.

Interim director of residential life Paul Hubinsky emailed residents of the Foster-Walker Complex to say that they did not suspect foul play in her death.

“Jordan was a remarkably dynamic young woman,” head 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.”

The team was scheduled to play against Minnesota on Wednesday, but they have since canceled the game.
