Marshall Henderson is a player fans love to hate, and he plays the role to perfection. During Sunday’s SEC tournament championship game, Henderson taunted Florida fans by doing the Gator Chomp after making a 3-pointer to put Ole Miss up 59-53. The three gave the Rebels their biggest lead of the game, and it came five minutes after Henderson made three free throws to give Ole Miss its first lead of the game. Players know the easiest way to get Gators fans ticked at you is by doing that gesture towards the crowd. Brock Berlin was hated after he did it to Florida fans following his transfer to Miami, and now Henderson joins him in the same category. Henderson previously antagonized Auburn fans with a taunting celebration following a win in January. Henderson is doing his best to become one of the biggest characters this March. “I dreamed I gave them the Gator chomp. Then I woke up and said, ‘Hmmmm, gator bait,’ ” Henderson said after the game, per The Palm Beach Post’s Jason Lieser. A day earlier, Henderson shared his hilarious goal for the rest of the season: “make a name for myself so I can get this money.” Henderson had 21 points in the 66-63 win over Florida. He’ll have a chance to impress scouts Friday in the tourney against No. 5 seed Wisconsin. We’ll see if he can get that paper.
