Texas G cheered in first game since leukemia battle

Andrew Jones receives standing ovation

The five star recruit for the Texas Longhorns' men's basketball team was diagnosed with Leukemia last January, and battled with the disease this entire year, even transferring to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, which ended up significantly reducing the time of his treatment program.

They got to their feet when Jones entered the game against Eastern Illinois University with 11:40 left on the clock, ESPN reported.

"It's great to see Andrew out on the court", said Longhorn head coach Shaka Smart.

Jones even led Texas in scoring at 13.5 points though the first 10 games of his sophomore season. Check out the huge ovation Jones drew as he checked out of the game after sinking the free throw. Soon after a road game against Iowa State on January 1, he received the leukemia diagnosis. In his two seasons with Texas, he's averaged 11.9 points, 3.2 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.

Last season Jones was sidelined him being diagnosed with leukemia. He was released from the hospital in late February and completed outpatient treatment in August.
