The Longhorns escaped with the win after TCU point guard Jaylen Fisher missed what would have been the game-winning layup at the end of the second overtime. Jones is the younger brother of former Baylor standout Alexis Jones, now in the WNBA.

Texas previously announced they will begin wearing "AJ1" patches on their basketball jerseys to honor Jones. Jones was ejected from the auto but escaped with only some bruising.
