The Northwestern Wildcats are mourning the loss of a Jordan Hankins, a sophomore on the women's basketball team found dead in her dorm room Monday. According to the Indy Star, there is no indication of foul play.

She was only 19 years old.

"Jordan was a remarkably dynamic young woman," Northwestern 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."

Northwestern's game Wednesday against Minnesota has been postponed. Hankins was teammates with Nia Coffey, the older sister of Gophers freshman star, Amir Coffey.
