Coaches All-SEC team

Great to have a laptop again.

The SEC”s leading scorer did not make the All-SEC first team for the first time since 2001 as Marshall Henderson was relegated to second team by the coaches.

That nugget comes from Ole Miss media relations.

The SEC’s leading scorer that year was Ronald Dupress of LSU.

Not only did Henderson, the leading scorer, not make first team, but Murphy Holloway, the league’s leading rebounder, was also a second team choice.

The AP team has not yet come out.

The other Ole Miss All-SEC mention was Reggie Buckner, who made the all-defensive team.

Henderson settled in as the SEC’s leading scorer early in the season and remained atop the league. He’s averaging 19.7 points going into the SEC tournament, almost two points higher than the second scorer, Georgia’s Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Henderson leads the SEC in 3-point field goals made at 3.9 per game and is sixth in percentage at 36.0. He is also the SEC’s top free throw shooter at 87.7 percent.

Holloway leads the SEC with 9.6 rebounds a game. He’s averaging 14.6 points.

Buckner is second to injured Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel with 2.7 blocked shots per game.

In conference-only statistics, Henderson also led the SEC in scoring at 20.8 points a game, ahead of Texas A&M’s Elston Turner with 19.4 points a game.

Against the league Henderson is first in 3-point field goals at 3.8 per game, seventh in percentage at 34.8.

He leads in free throw shooting at 88.5.

Against league competition Buckner led the conference with 2.5 blocks per game.

Holloway slipped to 8.6 rebounds per game in the conference, trailing Tennessee’s Jarnell Stokes and LSU’s Johnny O’Bryant. O’Bryant made the All-SEC first team, Stokes the second.

  • If Henderson had shown better sportsmanship, he probably gets the 1st team. My 8 year old son even noticed that Henderson will mouth off to referees and taunt opposing players. Coaches more than anyone else take notes of how a potential all conference player acts, they have to…they’ll be representing the SEC. Nobody wants a talented player that can’t control his behavior, it sets a bad example. I applaud the coaches for getting it right, for the kids that are watching’s sake.

      I hope your 8 year old does not grow up to let the Rebels own him like his Dad. Mabey his mom will teach him there is more to life than hate. Welcome back to our blog, sad little obsessed boy

      Nah. If it had been a moo u player he would have been playing with “spirit” …

      Think that might be the reason no one seems to want their coach? lol
