TCU's Kenrich Williams, who had just three points at halftime, led all scorers with 26 points.

Texas dedicated its emotional double overtime win over TCU on Wednesday night to Andrew Jones, whose family announced earlier in the day that the guard has been diagnosed with leukemia.

"After undergoing a number of tests and evaluations over the past week, Andrew has been diagnosed with leukemia", the family said in a statement released through the university.

"This is obviously a hard situation for our family, and we hope everyone will respect our privacy at this time", the Jones' family statement said.

Jones returned to the court December 29 and played nine minutes at home in the loss to Kansas. When responding to questions about Jones' absence, it was clear from coach Shaka Smart's pained reaction this was more than a typical virus or illness. "He's the one that's been on our minds and in our hearts", Smart told ESPN after the game.

Hoda Kotb Named as New Co-Anchor; Matt Lauer Reacts
Kotb did not mention what her contracted salary is, but Page Six reports that she and Guthrie are each making $7 million annually. The transition from Lauer to Kotb has also been a leadership moment for Guthrie, who became a co-host of " Today " in 2012.


Obviously, the game tonight pales in importance to Jones' health.

In a statement, the school said Jones, a former Irving MacArthur standout, had begun treatment and asked the public to keep Jones in its thoughts and prayers.

Before his diagnosis, Jones had ambitions of someday playing in the National Basketball Association.

Prior to injuries this season, the sophomore was averaging 15.3 points per game which was leading the team.

Jones was a McDonald's All-American in high school and then averaged 11.4 points as a freshman last season. After the razor-close victory, Longhorns Dylan Osetkowski and Eric Davis grabbed the jersey and held it aloft as players sang "The Eyes of Texas" with the home crowd. All they want now is for Jones to get healthy again.
