It looks like we’ll get to see Marshall Henderson, one of the most energetic players in last season’s March Madness, begin his 2013 basketball season. From ESPN,
Mississippi’s 6-foot-2 senior guard will be back on the court for Saturday’s road game against Coastal Carolina after being suspended for the season opener. The Rebels hope he can add some scoring punch while keeping his behavior in check.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said he is anxious to see how his team — and Henderson — respond to a hostile environment.
“I know they’ll be excited to yell at Marshall,” Kennedy said. “But get in line, a lot of people are.”
Henderson was originally suspended indefinitely by the school back in July, when he was found with marijuana and cocaine at a traffic stop, albeit small amounts.
Henderson was suspended three regular-season games by the school. He still must sit out the Rebels’ first two Southeastern Conference games against Auburn (Jan. 9) and Mississippi State (Jan. 11).
Henderson is ready to make an impact immediately, and will get the chance to do just that wen the Rebels play on Saturday. He can score from just about anywhere on the court, and he typically scores a lot. He averaged 20.1 ppg, 1.8 apg, and 3.1 rpg last season with Ole Miss.
