Video: Mississippi’s Marshall Henderson also passes the basketball

Marshall Henderson shoots. A lot. Like, nearly 15-times-a-game a lot. He also manages to alienate nearly every opposing fan base with his outrageous antics, like gator-chomping or jersey-shaking. But whether you love the junior guard or hate him, he’s undeniably a very good basketball player, one who can carry Ole Miss far in the NCAA tournament.

At halftime against fifth-seeded Wisconsin, with his Rebels losing 25-22, Henderson’s having an atrocious afternoon from the field, shooting 1 for 11 overall (two points) and missing all four three-point attempts. But he at least he displayed some passing chops.

He also has a new haircut, and a new haircut passes for news in Marshall Henderson’s world. The fuss seems to be over symmetrical slits on the side of his head. Kind of like antlers. Or devil horns.
