Here are three things we learned from LaSalle's 76-74 victory over 12th-seeded Mississippi on Sunday night (West region):
1. Think the good people at VCU are worrying about their school's claim to fame?
In 2011, the inaugural year for the NCAA tournament's First Four round where eight teams vie for four spots in the 64-team NCAA field, through a two-pack of TuesdayWednesday games in Dayton, Ohio VCU shocked everyone by advancing from Dayton ... all the way to the Final Four in Houston (eventually losing to Butler in the national semis).
VCU's rise to glory was the best possible occurrence for the NCAA selection committee, bringing instant legitimacy to the First Four system. That aside, it still felt like a once-in-generation event, as 11-seeds and 16-seeds typically incur arduous roads to the Sweet 16 and Final Four.
But here comes LaSalle, a program that hadn't been to The Big Dance in 21 years, beating Boise State in Dayton, shocking Kansas State in Kan...
BEST OF MAXIM
Because anything less would have been civilized. But did the crowd provoke him?
BIRD IS THE WORD
Marshall Henderson capped off his highly-publicized 2012-2013 season on Sunday the way most of us probably expected him to — by flipping off the fans. After Ole Miss lost to La Salle in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Henderson gave some of the fans above the tunnel the double middle finger. He confirmed that he made the gesture after the game, telling reporters that a...
Ole Miss’ Marshall Henderson has become known for basically doing whatever he feels like, on and off the court. Tonight, after his Rebels lost to La Salle on a last-second shot with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, Henderson reportedly gave the crowd two middle fingers on his way to the locker room.
Whether or not there will be repercussions remains to be seen.
If Mississippi's Marshall Henderson starts piling up points in the first half Sunday, La Salle could be in for a long night.
The gregarious shooting guard is making a habit of saving his best for last.
Coach Andy Kennedy has searched for ways to settle the excitable Henderson down and get him going from the opening tip. But nothing seems to work. So he says he'll just keep...
Well, it was a fun weekend of following Marshall Henderson, the trolling guard for the Mississippi Rebels. With La Salle sending him and the Rebels home, and dreams of a Sweet 16 dashed, Henderson gave a double middle finger salute to the crowd as he exited the floor in Kansas City. Via BSO: Marshall Henderson just gave the KC crowd double middle fingers. Classy. — RockChalkBlog...
The internet nearly exploded when Johnny Football reached out to Marshall Henderson over Twitter.
All of you haters can finally breath a sigh of relief. Marshall Henderson and his Ole Miss Rebels have been eliminated from the tournament after yesterday’s 76-74 loss against LaSalle. Henderson didn’t handle the loss well and reportedly flipped the crowd the double bird:
People were even more harsh on Twitter. There were death threats, assumptions of drug use and just all around...
Marshall Henderson was the face of Mississippi basketball this season as the Rebels advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002.
But the flamboyant, high-scoring guard had plenty of help from seniors Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner, two bruising and experienced forwards who did most of the dirty work in the paint while Henderson scored most of the points and...
Marshall Henderson says if Mississippi fans want to take it out on anybody, they can take it out on him.
Mississippi's swaggering shooting guard, who draws about as much attention as anyone else in college basketball, said he's to blame for La Salle's 76-74 victory in the third round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.
''We should still be playing. I'm not...
Nobody would have blamed La Salle's weary guys for leaving the Sprint Center, finding the nearest bed in the team hotel and laying down for a well-earned snooze.
Ole Miss star Marshall Henderson? He was hitting the town to celebrate.
The No. 12 seed Rebels knocked off fifth-seeded Wisconsin in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Friday night, shortly before the No. 13...
No. 13 seeds and No. 12 seeds are not supposed to meet in the tournament. Having one upset its opening round competition is not unusual, but both? As Vizzini from the Princess Bride would say--
Both did win their opening games, La Salle upsetting Kansas State and Ole Miss upsetting Wisconsin, but after Sunday only one underdog could move on.
Both teams had solid...
