Mississippi tries to return to NCAA tournament
JACKSON, Miss.- Mississippi's Marshall Henderson will eventually be back to help the Rebels try to make the NCAA tournament for a second straight season.
It's unclear if he'll have enough help around him to make that a reality.
The Rebels are coming off one of the most successful seasons in the school's history, advancing to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002.
But now coach Andy Kennedy must replace veteran big men like Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner, who provided most of the inside muscle, not to mention plenty of points and rebounds.
Henderson should provide the majority of the outside scoring. The 6-foot-2 guard led the SEC with 20.1 points per game this season, but has already been suspended for three games related to events over the past year.
