(EVANSTON, Ill.) - Northwestern women's basketball player Jordan Hankins has been found dead in her room at the university.

The university said in a statement that the 19-year-old Hankins' body was found Monday afternoon. The statement from spokesman Carsten Parmenter said there is no indication of foul play or "any danger or threat to other members of the Northwestern community."

The nature and cause of Hankins' death will be determined by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Women's basketball coach Joe McKeown called the 5-foot-8 sophomore a "remarkably dynamic young woman," adding her death is a "devastating loss for our basketball family."

Hankins was recruited out of Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis, where she received Indiana Basketball Coaches Association/Subway Underclass All-State Honorable Mention in both 2013 and 2014.

Hankins averaged 3.6 points in 11 games this season. Northwestern's scheduled game against Minnesota on Wednesday has been canceled.
