Henderson in Qatar

There is a sweet older lady at my church who routinely asks me for Marshall Henderson updates.

I don’t usually have anything new to report. Now I do.

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was asked about Henderson the SEC teleconference Monday.

Henderson is playing professionally in Qatar, a small stretch of land in the Persian Gulf between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

“He’s playing in Qatar if you can believe that,” Kennedy said. “Hey may finally give us peace in the Middle East. He’s actually doing very well.”

The website for the Al Rayyan Doha basketball team lists Henderson as one of its “top players.” The most recent stats listed are for the 2013-2014 season.

Here’s the link.

Kennedy says he’s in contact with Henderson fairly regularly.

Kennedy has been pleased to see the recent success of junior college transfer guard Stephan Moody after a slow start. Moody was signed with the idea that he would replace Henderson’s scoring, and he’s done a much better job of that of late.

“Moody has filled the role Marshall left. He’s a volume scorer as well, although he does it in different ways, Steph has jumped into that void and given us another offensive spark,” Kennedy said.

    l wish him no ill will, but I’m suprised he hasn’t gotten in major trouble in Qatar. He was a loose cannon in the U.S.
