According to coach Andy Kennedy in an interview with the Sporting News, Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson is taking all the necessary steps in serving his suspension. Henderson, one of the most divisive players in recent college basketball memory, was suspended on July 10 and, despite being able to work out with the team, will miss some games when the 2013 season begins.
Said coach Kennedy:
He will miss games. The extent of that is yet to be determined as we go through this process.
From the time I suspended him, he’s been 100 percent compliant with the plan. And our hope is he will continue to make the strides necessary to get back on the court.
Kennedy also said the talented yet temperamental Henderson has demonstrated signs of maturing:
He’s said, ‘I’ve done some things that put myself in a position where others have had to deal with it.’ Everything’s been positive.
He has a better understanding of how people view him, are going to challenge him.
Henderson averaged 20.1 points per game for Ole Miss in 2012 and was named the MVP of the SEC Tournament.
