UNT women's basketball player found dead in dorm


A University of North Texas women's basketball player was found dead in her dorm room on Tuesday.

Eboniey Jeter, 21, was a graduate of Harker Heights High School in Killeen, Texas. She was a redshirt sophomore on UNT's basketball team.

A university spokesperson said there's no reason to believe foul play was involved.

"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."
