The Marshall Henderson madness has begun. After Ole Miss defeated 57-46 Wisconsin in their first round NCAA Tournament match-up, you just knew that Henderson would be going nuts. Hate was coming his way left and right, but it all became worth it after he noticed a certain tweet. LeBron James posted the following tweet at the conclusion of the game: This caused Henderson to go nuts with a capslock dominated Tweet to silence all his damn haters: Can you blame the guy at this point? He puts up 19 points and led the Rebels to a big win over the fifth seeded Badgers and still has to deal with losers on Twitter. Who cares that he only had 2 points on 1-11 shooting in the first half. White Chocolate came to play when it mattered most. Imagine dealing with losers like @xavier_manzo5 after every game: Good for Henderson for being himself throughout this roller coaster of a season. From his excessive taunting to his Twitter antics to his Coors Light pounding, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more entertaining college athlete out there. We’re officially on the Rebels bandwagon from here on out. HOTTY TODDY! UPDATE: WHITE CHOCOLATE WILL BE INTERVIEWED BY CHARLES BARKLEY TOMORROW! [@NativeFlash22] Filed under: Basketball, NCAA

Henderson is a (mouth) runnin Rebel

KANSAS CITY, Mo. They surged into the Ole Miss locker room like an overflowing riverbank Thursday morning, holding cameras and tape recorders meant specifically for the most entertaining and controversial player in college basketball.

LeBron James Gives Shout-Out to Marshall Henderson, Ole Miss Guard Reacts Accordingly

Marshall Henderson may have more enemies than fans in the college basketball world, but not many of his critics can say they’ve received a personal shout-out from LeBron James.

Wisconsin goes cold falls 57-46 in NCAA tourney
