Texas Tech Basketball Team Wears No. 1 For Andrew Jones, Longhorns Player Fighting Leukemia

-

The entire Texas Tech basketball program made an incredible gesture on Wednesday night.

Ahead of their meeting with the rival Texas Longhorns, Red Raiders lined up in shirts featuring the No. 1 to honor and show respect to Andrew Jones, a Longhorns player who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Texas Tech shared a photo of their team wearing the warm-up shirts on social media.

Jones, a sophomore guard, was the Longhorns’ second-leading scorer with 13.5 points per game before suffering a broken wrist on Dec. 11. He was later forced out of action due to an undisclosed illness, which was then he was diagnosed.

“Speaking for our entire team and staff, we love Andrew and will do everything we can to support his family and help him get back to health,” Texas head coach Shaka Smart said in a statement announcing the news. “I want to thank everyone for being respectful of the privacy that the Jones family needs at this time.”
