Henderson is a punk and am embarrassment to our university. Anyone who says differently is too biased to see straight. We've been making fun of MSU players for being less than ideal behavior wise, now we go and get the biggest punk of them all. No defending him. I don't even want to try and defend him. And I'm not even going into what he's already been forgiven of. You would think he would be grateful to be still playing basketball.
Love him or hate him (and there doesn’t seem to be any middle ground), Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson draws attention and generates controversy for what he does on the court and what he says – either on or off the hardwood. Last night’s 64-62 victory over Missouri was no exception. Henderson torched the Tigers for 27 points, taunted Missouri fans and coaches and had plenty to say after the game after celebrating on the scorers’ table.
“I’m a manipulator of sorts and I like messing with people’s minds, and it’s pretty funny to mess with people like that. It’s a freaking game. It’s a basketball game. People take it so seriously that it’s funny for a little white guy like me to just come around, talk trash to people and the fans. Like, what are you going to do in the stands? What am I going to do on the court to you in the stands? It’s funny just to mess with people.”
After the game was over, Henderson says not many Missouri players wanted to shake his hand.
“Four of them did. But we don’t expect them to shake hands…Yeah, the walk-ons did. And Bowers. Bowers is a good sport…I’m not going to sit here and say we didn’t say a couple of things to them in the ear after the final buzzer sounded, but you can come shake our hands. We’re going to shake their hands. But it’s whatever. We get the last laugh in the end. We came out on top…
“We hate each other. I think we just created a really big rivalry in the SEC between Ole Miss and Missouri. That’s good.”
Missouri coach Frank Haith was asked by the postgame handshake comments. ”Oh, come on now. I’m not getting into that.”
