Texas PG Andrew Jones Diagnosed With Leukemia

Graduate of University of Delaware.

The 6-foot-4 Jones was a McDonald's All American coming out of MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas.

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

AUSTIN - Texas sophomore shooting guard Andrew Jones has been diagnosed with leukemia, the school announced Wednesday. "This is obviously a hard situation for our family, and we hope everyone will respect our privacy at this time". "He has begun treatments, and we hope everyone will keep him in your thoughts and prayers". The team has offered its full support, and Texas head coach Shaka Smart has spent an extensive amount of time with Jones' family over the weekend.

Triple H Gives Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Status
Rousey refused to comment when approached by TMZ , only saying, "I enjoy fine dining". "I had a really good steak", he said. Besides, Rousey is unlikely to work a full-time schedule in WWE, irrespective of when she debuts.

The 6-4, 190-pound guard missed four games earlier this season after fracturing his wrist against Virginia Commonweath, but a new issue cropped up upon his return. "I want to thank everyone for being respectful of the privacy that the Jones family needs at this time". 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.

Concern regarding Jones' health first arose in late December when he returned from a fractured wrist but did not look himself. He played only nine minutes against Kansas and 11 against Iowa State. Jones is the younger brother of former Baylor standout Alexis Jones, now in the WNBA.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jones and his family. Jones was ejected from the vehicle but escaped with only some bruising.
