There is some sad news to report in the college basketball world.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that North Texas women’s basketball player Eboniey Jeter was found dead in her dorm room. Jeter, 21, was a redshirt sophomore.
“She was a great young lady and a tremendous competitor, but most of all she was a trusted teammate on the women’s basketball team and a respected member of the Mean Green family,” said UNT Director of Athletics Rick Villarreal in a statement.
“As we deal with this loss, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Eboniey’s family, relatives and friends. North Texas won’t be the same without her as we have lost a friend and loved one.”
The university said that there is no reason to believe foul play was involved.
