Ole Miss guard Henderson suspended

Ole Miss guard Henderson suspended


OXFORD, Miss. (AP/WATE) -- Ole Miss has suspended guard Marshall Henderson indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

The school issued a press release Wednesday announcing the suspension but it did not provide details why Henderson was suspended.

Various national media outlets, including ESPN.com, are reporting Henderson's suspension is for multiple failed drug tests.

The 6-foot-2 senior from Hurst, Texas, averaged 20.1 points per game last season. He helped the Rebels win the SEC tournament championship and advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002.

But the flamboyant guard also was known for his abrasive personality, and he quickly became the player opposing teams loved to hate.

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in a statement that Henderson "must do a better job of living up to the high standard we expect from him and he desires from himself."
