Northwestern's men's basketball team will wear a special patch on their uniforms on Thursday to honor late women's basketball player Jordan Hankins, the university announced.

Hankins, 19, was found dead in her dorm room on Monday afternoon. The medical examiner's report ruled the death a suicide by hanging.

The uniform patch is a black circle featuring Hankins's initials and No. 5 jersey number.

Before arriving at Northwestern, Hankins was a star at Lawrence North High School and helped her team reach the Class 4A Indiana Final Four in 2014. Hankins averaged 3.6 points in 11 games this season and 3.8 as a freshman at Northwestern.
