So much so that this time it could cost him yet another spot on yet another college basketball team.
South Plains College.
According to this report on CBSSportsline, Henderson has been suspended by Ole Miss for a violation of team rules. Apparently, he has failed a drug test and according to this report he may be kicked off the team.
Dude, just quit smoking weed for at least a little bit and get it together. You have to think whatever junk he is smoking must be some high grade stuff.
Bet hard Ole Miss is going to do everything it can to keep him around - think drug counseling, which from the sounds of it can't hurt - but Henderson's long-shot prayer of the NBA is dead. He can't play in that league anyway, and with a record as loaded with black marks such as his he is all but bought a ticket to overseas pro ball.
Henderson is as polarizing of a figure as any in recent memory in college basketball, because of his mad game and giant mouth. His middle finger, too, which he would shoot at opposing fans. And that he would brazenly go out and "party" with fans.
The guy is a good college player, but everywhere he has been it's been trouble. A big mouth. A giant attitude. Weed. The cops. Something.
He led Ole Miss to the SEC tourney title and an appearance in the NCAA's Round of 32 in the spring. He has one year of eligibility remaining. He averaged more than 20 points per game as a junior at Ole Miss.
As badly as Ole Miss needs his game, and as much as head coach Andy Kennedy should appreciate what Marshall did for his team thus all but giving him a contract extension, this may finally be it for Marshall.
