OXFORD – Marshall Henderson will miss one exhibition game and three regular season games – including the first two of SEC play – as part of his suspension for team rules violations.

The suspension was announced in July, and details were made public Tuesday morning. The Wall Street Journal reported the suspension was the result of a traffic stop for suspicion of speeding and a small amount of drug possession. There was no arrest based on the amounts, the story said.

Henderson, who led the SEC in scoring as Ole Miss won the SEC tournament and reached the NCAA’s last year, will miss the Rebels’ exhibition game against South Carolina-Aiken on Nov. 1, the season opener against Troy on Nov. 8, the SEC opener at home against Auburn on Jan. 9 and the second SEC game at Mississippi State on Jan. 11.

    well, it was just a little bit of drugs and since there was no arrest it’s no big deal. that figures. I expected nothing less. Or, should that be nothing more as far as punishment goes. The thing is that this kid will learn nothing from this. So, now the program is just helping itself.

      No, he’ll learn that as long as you’re a successful athlete, the rules don’t really apply to you.

    Henderson needs to go. He’ll create more chaos than points and while we’re at it, get rid of Kennedy. He has dug some nice ruts for the program. Yeah, I know, the Rebels won the SECT but that was a total freakish accident.
