Andrew Jones is back in the game!
The Texas Longhorns basketball guard made a triumphant return to the court on Tuesday night, rejoining the rotation for the University of Texas at Austin team, after missing the past two seasons while receiving treatment for leukemia.
During Tuesday’s game, Jones returned to the court for his fourth season and didn’t just play, he earned a career-best scoring 20 points in just 29 minutes to help the Longhorns defeat Northern Colorado 69-45.
“Glad you’re back,” the Texas Longhorns tweeted following the game.
Jones was diagnosed with leukemia in January 2018, a month after a wrist injury caused him to miss four games. At the time, he was the Longhorns’ leading scorer.
