Marshall Henderson Suspended: Bright Career Turns Sour Once Again
Oddly enough, the College Basketball world is only a few months removed from seeing Marshall Henderson and the Ole Miss Rebels ruin everyone’s bracket by upsetting the Wisconsin Badgers. However, Henderson’s recent down spiral makes it seems like years since the shooting guard was on top of the world.
Unfortunately, Ole Miss has indefinitely suspended the controversial Henderson for reportedly failing multiple drug tests. This isn’t the first time that No. 22 has had issues with illegal drugs. In fact, three yeas ago he was arrested for trying to purchase marijuana with fake money — it’s unknown whether or not it was Monopoly money or not. Also, in January of 2012 Henderson spent 25 days in jail due to a failed drug test that violated his probation — the Texas native tested positive for cocaine, marijuana and alcohol.
I understand giving a disgruntled kid second and third chances, but it’s becoming more and more obvious that Henderson is someone who doesn’t have a sensible bone in his body. Don’t let his off-the-court antics fool you though, Henderson was actually named Southeastern Conference tournament MVP and led the entire conference in scoring as a junior in 2012.
Some thought that the NBA might be a great possibility for the incredible three-point shooter, but Henderson insisted on spending his senior year in Oxford to complete his studies. Could you imagine the backlash if this positive test came through while Marshall was on an NBA team?
