CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - Jackie Moore, a 28-year-old assistant women's basketball coach at Eastern Illinois, has died.
The university says Moore died Wednesday night at a hospital after collapsing as she started a workout.
School spokesman Rich Moser says doctors said Moore's heart "just stopped." Moser says an autopsy is planned.
Moore was in her third season at the school. She graduated from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tenn., in 2005, and was from Windsor, Ontario.
EIU canceled all sports events this weekend.
