Texas Tech team wears special No. 1 warmups for Texas player with leukemia

The entire Texas Tech basketball team stood in solidarity with Texas on Wednesday night.

Before the game, each Red Raiders player wore special No. 1 warmup jerseys in honor of Andrew Jones, the Longhorns sophomore recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Jones, a sophomore who was Texas' second-leading scorer (13.5 points), has already begun treatment for his diagnosis and a fundraising website has been set up by Texas to support him and his family.

The host Longhorns then knocked off the No. 8 Red Raiders 67-58, and improved to 3-3 in Big 12 play.
