Marshall Henderson had an exceedingly Marshall Henderson day yesterday. As you probably know by now, he started off Mississippi's upset win over Wisconsin one of 13, a ratio that would shatter the confidence of even the steadiest shooters. Of course, Henderson isn't "steady" so much as "cartoonishly cocksure," like a wrestler preening at the top of the ropes shortly after being whacked in the face with a folding chair, and he was not deterred by the rough start. Henderson scored 17 of his 19 points in the last 11:25, willing the Rebels to victory as their only real offensive threat. Then he went drinking in Kansas City's Power and Light district, because he's Marshall Henderson and it was 3:30 in the afternoon.
Henderson's interview with Charles Barkley (#AYEEE) and the rest of the CBS studio team just aired. Henderson and Barkley both sounded hungover. Even better, Bryant Gumbel asked him whether he was aware that LeBron James tweeted at him, which, yes, vaguely.
