Marshall Henderson Will Return To Ole Miss

mrsec-breaking-newsOle Miss guard Marshall Henderson announced Wednesday he will return for his senior season.

Henderson announced his decision through a letter on the school’s official website:

“First, I would like to thank the Ole Miss fans for their support this season. It was a lot of fun even though we didn’t make it to the Sweet Sixteen in L.A. It was our goal this season to get Reggie, Murph and Nick to the Big Dance and we did that. It is my goal to make next season even better.

With only nine hours left to earn my degree, I want to help build this program and that means I need to be a leader for my teammates both on and off the court. The spotlight on the court means my actions affect more than just me, and I need to show my teammates that I can be a leader for this team.

I play the game with a lot of passion, and sometimes that passion boils over. I take responsibility for my actions this season and apologize to anyone I offended. However, my edge on the court has made me the player that I am. I can’t change that, but I do understand that I can take things too far.

I have come to understand this year that I represent this team and this university, and I have to hold myself to a higher standard than people in the stands, because I am a student-athlete at Ole Miss.

Hotty Toddy,

Marshall Henderson”

Henderson’s 20.1 points per game led Ole Miss in scoring this season. But it was the personality Henderson referenced in his letter that brought him so much attention and at times criticism.

Will we see a calmer Henderson on the floor in 2013-14? It looks like we’ll find out.

1.  There is no "mrsec."  There is the site MrSEC.com and this story was written by Josh Ward, one of our three writers.

2.  What line in this piece can be taken in any way as though the writer is "acting like he be mad?"  There is absolutely not one word here that suggests anyone is angry about anything.  It's completely in your head... which should worry you.

No, I saw how you signed it.  But if you spent every day receiving "Why do you hate my school" emails, you'd take a comment like yours at face value, too.  

After all, couldn't a Rebel fan have signed it MH as a further attempted dig?  Plus, there's still nothing in the piece that comes across as angry. 

Sorry if the sarcasm was missed.
