3 notes and a quote: Henderson sets SEC record

HENDERSON

HENDERSON

OXFORD – Marshall Henderson broke the SEC record for consecutive games, previously held by Pat Bradley of Arkansas, with at least one 3-pointer on Wednesday.

Henderson has hit at least one 3-point shot in 61 consecutive games, every one of his Ole Miss career.

“It’s an honor to break the record, but when you shoot as many 3s as I do, records are bound to fall,” Henderson said through the school’s media relations staff.

Millinghaus suspended

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy announced before the tip that sophomore guard Derrick Millinghaus has been suspended indefinitely for undisclosed team rules violations.

In his absence LaDarius White spent some times at the point, but the point mostly belonged to Jarvis Summers, who played 38 minutes.

White had three points, an assist and two turnovers in 16 minutes. He played only eight minutes against Florida when Millinghaus was available.

20-win streak in play

Ole Miss has won at least 20 games in six of Andy Kennedy’s first seven seasons as head coach. There are four guaranteed games left, and the Rebels have to win three to reach 20.

The Rebels have won at least 20 for four straight seasons.

Kennedy’s 2008-2009 team, beset by a number of injuries including a torn ACL for leading scorer Chris Warren, finished 16-15 and did not reach the the NIT.

Quotable

“I always expected to play like this. Last year I had so many players in front of me, and I already didn’t have any experience as a freshman.” – Ole Miss guard Martavious Newby
