Marshall Henderson Returning For Senior Season Is Huge For the Ole Miss Rebels

The Ole Miss Rebels barely squeaked into the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but they still managed to pull off an upset against the Wisconsin Badgers in their first game of the tourney. Marshall Henderson was a big reason for that and he will be returning to the team for his senior year in the 2013-14 college basketball season.

Love him or hate him, Henderson can flat out ball. In two tournament games this year, Henderson averaged 20 points, which was right around his season average of 20.1 points per game.

No matter what Ole Miss looks like next year it will at least have its best player back. Henderson led the team in scoring and he was a huge spark to the Rebels.

However, he did attempt 10.9 threes per game and only made 35 percent of those shots on average. That is a number that could definitely increase with some practice during the offseason. Whether the case, Henderson made 138 shots from behind the arc this year.

Henderson is the type of player that will keep shooting regardless if he is on or not because that is how much faith he has in his shot.

He only played one season with Ole Miss, so fans would probably love to see him back for another year in a Rebels uniform and they are in luck.

Hopefully everyone is ready to see one of the most exciting players to watch in college basketball again next season because Henderson will be back and he should be even better in his senior year for Ole Miss.
