Love him or hate him, Marshall Henderson was a scoring machine this year for the Ole Miss Rebels. With that said, he will lead the SEC in scoring for the second straight year in the 2013-14 college basketball season.
There are plenty of great players coming into the conference, mostly thanks to the incoming freshmen on the Kentucky Wildcats. However, Henderson did average 20.1 points per game on the year and all.
He may not be the most accurate shooter at times, but when you fire off 15.3 shots per game, you are bound to rack up the points. Who knows how many more shots Henderson will be taking next year, with the departure of Murphy Holloway. However, if Henderson can be a more accurate shooter, he could easily lead the nation in points per game.
He shot 38.1 percent from the field and 35 percent from the three. He was pretty much a given every time he went to the charity stripe though.
There really is not a whole lot of players that could even challenge Henderson for the scoring title in the SEC, thanks to a lot of players graduating or declaring for the NBA Draft, but breakout seasons happen all of the time, so who knows.
One thing is for sure and that is Henderson is going to keep firing the ball until he makes it. You’ve go to love his confidence, but sometimes he can definitely hurt his team when his shots are not falling. However, Henderson is a great player and will be the favorite to lead the SEC in scoring next season.
