On Thursday night, the Northwestern University men’s basketball team will honor late women’s basketball player Jordan Hankins, who died Monday.
The Wildcats will debut a jersey patch featuring Hankins’ initials and No. 5 for their Big Ten game at Rutgers.
On Tuesday, Hankins’ death was ruled a suicide, according to The Daily Northwestern. She was found dead in Foster-Walker Complex on Monday afternoon.
She averaged 3.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 11 appearances this year and was a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.
“Jordan was a remarkably dynamic young woman,” Northwestern women’s basketball coach Joe McKeown said in a statement released Monday. “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.”
