A&M's Jordan Jones out of hospital after scary collision vs. Vols

Texas A&M's Jordan Jones was released from the hospital Sunday after a scary moment in a game against Tennessee, in which she hit her head forcefully on the hardwood after a hard collision.

The Aggies provided an update on Jones late Sunday night by tweeting that they would have a "full update" on her condition Monday.

In the fourth quarter of A&M's 76-71 win over Tennessee, Jones lay motionless on the court for several minutes and eventually was carried off on a stretcher, to the applause of the crowd.

She was transported to a hospital, where she underwent testing Sunday night. In the game, her exit marked a turning point for A&M.

"[Jones] was the one that helped us get our energy going,'' forward Courtney Walker said. "We felt like we could not tell her later tonight that we lost. We had to tell her that we won.''

Walker and the Aggies roared back by outscoring Tennessee 21-10 in the final period, which was capped by a game-tying field goal from Anriel Howard with five seconds remaining.

"Just turned around and shot it," Howard said. "I thought about [Jordan Jones] and said 'I have to make it.'"
