Texas unveils temporary logo patch for Andrew Jones

Texas unveils temporary logo patch for Andrew Jones

While Texas will miss Jones' outside shooting and creativity off the dribble this season, that's far from the Longhorns' biggest concern.

He hardly played. Same thing for the next game at Iowa State. He logged only nine minutes against Kansas on December 29, prompting Smart to note that he looked winded and needed to get back into game shape. By Tuesday, coach Shaka Smart looked shaken and on the verge of tears when he said he couldn't discuss what was ailing Jones out of "respect for the family". "I want to thank everyone for being respectful of the privacy that the Jones family needs at this time".

After undergoing tests, Jones received his diagnosis.

Texas hosts No. 16 TCU on Wednesday night. Afterward, Smart said Jones' wrist was no longer bothering him, but something else was robbing his leading scorer of energy. During pregame introductions, the Texas bench left a seat open and draped Jones' jersey across the back.

Jones, who is from Irving in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, averaged almost 12 points as a freshman and considered leaving for the National Basketball Association draft after but returned to Texas after attending the scouting combine. Smart gave no update on Jones' status and cited the family's request for privacy - a signal something was wrong. In April 2007, a 7-year-old Jones was in a auto that slipped off an icy road and flipped multiple times.

Chances of the Bank of Canada raising rates next week slipped to 64 percent, the overnight index swaps market indicated. Constellation Brands is an worldwide beer, wine and spirits company with operations in U.S., Mexico and Canada.

"We know Andrew's a fighter with a strong family and our thoughts, prayers and support are fully behind them", University of Texas Vice President and Director of Athletics Chris Del Conte said. Jones was ejected from the vehicle but escaped with only some bruising.

Jones, who was a 5-star prospect and the 29th-best player in the 2016 class according to 247Sports, visited Louisville and received an offer from the Cardinals.

"Gut wrenching news for Andrew Jones".

Oklahoma State's and Kansas' official basketball Twitter accounts posted encouraging messages as current and former Longhorns chimed in with uplifting words.

"On behalf of the entire #KUbball family, we send our thoughts and prayers to Andrew and his family".
