Texas guard from Irving MacArthur diagnosed with leukemia

Just hours after learning their #1, Andrew Jones, was diagnosed with leukemia, Texas won a double-overtime thriller by... of course, 1 point.

AUSTIN (AP) - Texas announced sophomore guard Andrew Jones has leukemia and has started treatment.

Jones, who attended Irving MacArthur, was the Longhorns' leading scorer before he was sidelined by a broken wrist. He played sparingly in his return after complaining of low energy and was sent for tests.

Jones considered leaving Texas for the NBA draft after his freshman season but opted to return to school.
