Jones missed four games earlier in the season with a wrist injury but was plagued by fatigue and other symptoms after returning to the court.

He hardly played. Same thing for the next game at Iowa State.

Then Jones didn't travel to a game last Saturday just 90 miles away at Baylor.

"That's the guy we recruited", Texas head coach Shaka Smart said of Coleman's performance. "I want to thank everyone for being respectful of the privacy that the Jones family needs at this time".

On Wednesday, the school announced Jones has been diagnosed with leukemia and had started treatment. He averaged 11.9 points as a freshman and attended the National Basketball Association draft combine last May, but he chose to return to school in hopes of improving his stock by showcasing a more consistent jump shot.

The post Texas unveils temporary logo patch for Andrew Jones appeared first on Hook 'Em. Smart gave no update on Jones' status and cited the family's request for privacy - a signal something was wrong.

President Trump Signs Bill Turning MLK's Birthplace Into A National Historical Park
CNN reported Trump's signature established the first national historic park in Georgia, and the legislation was sponsored by Rep. The bill also grants national historic park status to the church King was baptized in, as well as his grave.

The win over TCU was Texas' biggest of the season and improves the Longhorns' record to 11-5 and 2-2 in conference play. Andrew was 7 in 2007 when his father was paralyzed in a vehicle accident on an icy road.

"We know Andrew's a fighter with a strong family, and our thoughts, prayers and support are fully behind them", UT athletic director Chris Del Conte said.

Andrew Jones was ejected from the vehicle but suffered only a bruised hip.

Briefly: Freshman forward Brian Bowen Jr., a Louisville recruit who found himself at the center of a federal bribery probe that led to the firing of head coach Rick Pitino, has enrolled at SC.

Oklahoma State's and Kansas' official basketball Twitter accounts posted encouraging messages as current and former Longhorns chimed in with uplifting words.

Smart has spent extensive time with Jones and the family in recent days. "May he stay strong through this hard time and we are eager to see him back on the court soon", the Jayhawks program said.
