In honor of Andrew Jones, the Texas point guard who was recently diagnosed with leukemia, Texas Tech wore special warm-ups before their Wednesday night game against the Longhorns in Austin.

Jones, a sophomore guard who was Texas’ second-leading scorer at 13.5 ppg, fractured his wrist on Dec. 11 and was sidelined for four games before returning to the lineup on Dec. 29 against Kansas. He played in the Longhorns’ game against Iowa State on Jan. 1 before again exiting the lineup with an “undisclosed illness.”

If you would like to donate, Texas has made a fundraising website to help Jones during this time.
