Texas Sophomore Guard Andrew Jones Diagnosed With Leukemia, Starts Treatment

The mysterious ailment that has hampered Texas' second-leading scorer the past few weeks has proven more serious than anyone first imagined.

The University of Texas is honoring sophomore guard Andrew Jones with a temporary uniform patch against TCU tonight.

"After undergoing a number of tests and evaluations over the past week, Andrew has been diagnosed with leukemia", the family said in a statement released through the university. He played only nine minutes against Kansas on December 29 and 11 against Iowa State on January 1 before missing the Longhorns' game against Baylor last Saturday.

It was one of many demonstrations of emotion for Smart after a hard day.

Jones' family has dealt with challenges in the past.

We would like to send our best wishes to Jones as he prepares for the battle ahead. A Texas spokesman declined to reveal the type of leukemia Jones has or the prognosis for recovery because of privacy laws. As the band played the UT alma mater, the team thought about the fight Jones is about to go through.

He averaged 11.4 points as a freshman at Texas, but he made a decision to return for his sophomore season after attending the scouting combine. After the thrilling win, Texas players held up Jones' jersey, while Smart was seen tearing up during "The Eyes of Texas". All they want now is for Jones to get healthy again.
