Wednesday saw an emotional win for Texas as the Longhorns pulled out a double-overtime win over No. 16 TCU.

The win was important for a number of reasons, but most importantly, Texas was playing after it was announced earlier in the day that sophomore guard Andrew Jones had been diagnosed with Leukemia.

With Jones undergoing treatment and being away from the team, the Longhorns had to play without its top perimeter scorer on short notice. They still managed to earn the win over the Horned Frogs in a hard-fought double-overtime victory.

After the game, Texas players and coaches honored Jones by holding up his jersey.
