The 2013-2014 Ole Miss men’s basketball season is amongst us, and the defending SEC champions are ready to take the court. However, for the first few games the team will not have their star player on the court. Every school in Marshall Henderson’s past has lead to troubling roads. So, it seemed destined for him to continue a routine of trouble at Ole Miss. This past summer, Marshall was arrested for illegal drug use. During the off season, head basketball coach Andy Kennedy suspended Henderson indefinitely. In most cases when you hear the words “indefinitely” that means they are not coming back. But, in Henderson’s case, he is coming back. He will miss the first two league play games of the season (Auburn and Mississippi State), the exhibition opening game against South Carolina-Aiken, and the season opener against Troy. “I support this decision, and I am thankful to our leadership for allowing Marshall the opportunity to earn the right to rejoin our team. Marshall has been compliant with the process put in place for him since his suspension in early July, and we look forward to him being back on our team.” – Coach Andy Kennedy You can plan on Henderson starting his season on November 16th against Coastal Carolina. He will suit up when the team heads to Brooklyn for the Barclays Classic. In the 2012-2013 season, the Rebel guard received instant fame amongst Rebel Nation when he hit a clutch last second three pointer against Vandy to tie the game. He became nationally known for his antics in the Auburn game, and his controversial celebration in the SEC Championship game against Florida. Regardless of whether you love him or hate him, Marshall Henderson is a key impact player on the Rebel squad. He was the Rebels leading scorer last season and average more points per game than any other SEC player. Henderson would also set a school record for three pointers in a single season. Recently, ESPN The Magazine interviewed Henderson about his career at Ole Miss and trouble he has went through off the court. Here is the interview. Note: We do not know if we will get “Shaggy Henderson” or “GI Henderson” when the season begins.
