Marshall Henderson reportedly fails drug test, is suspended indefinitely
Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson has a checkered past that involves serious drug use, and he reportedly has not completely given it up. On Wednesday, Ole Miss announced that Henderson has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. According to Gary Parrish of CBS Sports, the suspension is related to a failed drug test.
“Since the season ended, we have talked a lot about Marshall taking a greater leadership role with our team,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in a statement, via USA TODAY. “With that comes greater responsibility, and he must do a better job of living up to the high standard we expect from him and he desires from himself.”
Back in January, details emerged about Henderson allegedly using counterfeit money to buy huge quantities of marijuana while he was a high school senior. He also spent 25 days in jail last year after reportedly violating his probation by testing positive for cocaine, marijuana and alcohol.
Henderson became one of the most polarizing figures in college basketball during March Madness, and most of his antics like Gator chomping at Florida fans were viewed as harmless. We now realize that stopping Marshall from flipping off opposing fans only scratches the surface of the issues Ole Miss has had with him.
