Eastern Michigan player killed in auto accident

Eastern Michigan junior forward Shannise Heady was killed in an automobile accident early this morning, along with another student:

“Obviously this is one of our toughest days as a program and for the entire Eagle Nation as we mourn the loss of Shannise,” said EMU Head Women’s Basketball Coach Tory Verdi. “No words can describe the feelings right now as we are truly devastated to learn of her passing. Shannise was not only an inspiration to all of us, but she brought energy and liveliness to our team. She was a true joy to coach and has left an everlasting impression not only on me but the rest of our team as well. She will be missed greatly.”
