In July, Ole Miss Rebels guard Marshall Henderson was suspended indefinitely after reportedly being pulled over by the Oxford, Mississippi police with cocaine and marijuana.
This, of course, added to the list of reasons fans dislike Henderson – he’s a very cocky player and last season he could be seen arguing with and mocking Auburn Tigers fans and mocking the Florida Gators’ chomp.
Although Henderson remains suspended, Rebels head coach Andy Kennedy is happy with the way Henderson had handled himself. Kennedy told reporters that it is a “fluid situation,” but he’s “pleased with the way he’s responded” and believes Henderson has learned his lesson.
“He’s been tremendous in his approach and the way in which he’s tried to help young guys,” Kennedy told the Associated Press. “I’ve really found him to be more of a leader on the floor and take some responsibility not only for himself but for those around him.
The senior out of Hurst, Texas averaged 20.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while shooting 38.1% from the floor, 35.0% from beyond the arc and 83.3% from the free throw line for the Rebels last season.
