The Marshall Plan

If you’ve followed this blog for a while you’ve probably seen me write at some point about the period of acclimation that applies to almost all newcomers.

The key for this with Ole Miss basketball right now is “almost all.”

Even the most high-profile of recruits can take a while before they really start to impact the game. C.J. Johnson made a much bigger impact this year as a sophomore. So did Donte Moncrief, even though he was a big part of the Ole Miss offense as a freshman.

You often see junior college transfers really blossom in their second seasons.

Ole Miss needed Marshall Henderson to live up to the hype from the very beginning and he has.

It’s not often that you hear a coach talk about the leadership he needs from a guy who has played only half a season in his program.

But Andy Kennedy talked about the leadership component of Henderson’s game and how he needs to bring that for this Ole Miss team.
