DENTON, Texas -- Forward Eboniey Jeter, who led the North Texas Mean Green women's basketball squad in shooting percentage last season, has been found dead in her dorm room. She was 21.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office website shows she was found dead Tuesday in her room in Mozart Square Hall on the University of North Texas campus. No cause of death has been determined, but a university spokeswoman says no foul play is suspected.
"We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the passing of Eboniey Jeter," director of athletics Rick Villarreal said in a statement released by the school. "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. 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 6-foot redshirt sophomore from Killeen, Texas, was an all-state performer at Harker Heights High School.
This past season, Jeter had a team-high 45.5-percent shooting average from the field, making 71 of her 156 shots. She had four double-doubles to her credit, three of them this season.
