Andrew Jones Returns from Battling Leukemia, Scores

  • Andrew Jones returned to the court Tuesday less than a year after being diagnosed with leukemia. More

Jones checked into Texas' 2018 season opening win against Eastern Illinois with 11:40 remaining in the second half for his first minutes since being diagnosed with leukemia previous year. Or maybe it was the game that preceded it in Kansas-Michigan State. "It's terrific seeing him back on the court and doing what he loves". The rising junior led Texas with 13.5 points per game a year ago.

Fans cheered again when Jones fought for a loose ball and got fouled to reach the free throw line for his first point. Jones didn't play another game for Texas during the 2017-18 season.

Jones spent the spring and summer receiving treatment at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. He was released from the hospital in late February and completed outpatient treatment in August. But hands down the best moment took place more than 1,000 miles south in Austin, Texas, when Longhorns guard Andrew Jones checked in for the first time after a monthslong battle with leukemia.
