Ole Miss' Henderson suspended three games
college basketball • Mississippi's Marshall Henderson has been suspended three regular-season games this season, including the first two Southeastern Conference games.
The school announced the suspension on Tuesday morning. The 6-foot-2 guard whose boisterous antics turned him into one of college basketball's biggest villains scored more than 20 points per game last season, but was indefinitely suspended in July after police found him with small amounts of marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop. Henderson was not arrested.
Henderson, a former Utah Ute, will miss the season opener against Troy on Nov. 8 and SEC games against Auburn (Jan. 9) and Mississippi State (Jan. 11).
