Kenny Thornton | 13 January, 2018, 16:36

Jones' family confirmed Wednesday that the Longhorns' top scorer was diagnosed with the disease after several recent medical tests, ESPN reported.

After missing time with an undisclosed illness, Texas Longhorns sophomore guard Andrew Jones will step away from basketball to recover from leukemia. "I want to thank everyone for being respectful of the privacy that the Jones family needs at this time". He also played nine minutes in the win at Iowa State on January 1.

It was one of many demonstrations of emotion for Smart after a hard day. Jones family and Shaka Smart released statements this morning. "He has begun treatments, and we hope everyone will keep him in your thoughts and prayers".

Now we have a better idea of what Jones is up against, though Texas did not offer many specifics. "At the University of Texas, we will do everything in our power to provide all of the resources we can to assist Andrew and his family".

Before his diagnosis, Jones had ambitions of someday playing in the National Basketball Association.

#7 Duke 87, Pittsburgh 52: Marvin Bagley III scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds as the visiting Blue Devils (14-2, 2-2 ACC) routed the Panthers (8-9, 0-4).

Jones, 20, averaged 11.9 points as a freshman last season and was averaging 13.5 points in 10 games this season.

The miss was immediately followed by an outpouring of emotion from the Texas players, who all wore "AJ1" patches and touched Jones' jersey during the starting lineup announcements.
