On Friday, the one and only Marshall Henderson led his 12th-seeded Ole Miss squad over a scrappy fifth-seeded Wisconsin team that literally could not buy a bucket from the thrift store.
And he did it in typical #Landshark style. One of the most outsized personalities in the Tournament this year, Henderson shot a putrid 1-for-11 from the field in the first half. However, the dude never met a shot he didn’t like (‘Shoot until you’re cold, shoot until you’re hot’, is another way of putting it) and lit it up in the second half. He finished with 19 points on the afternoon in the Rebels’ 57-46 win.
In the process, Henderson blew up the Twittersphere. Here are some fan reactions to the tale of two mad halves Henderson put together in the Tourney.
Marshall Henderson has every white dude in the country thinking they can ball right now (myself included).

Wisconsin not being able to make a single shot was not awesome though. Neither is Marshall Henderson. Oh but at least I did well on the quiz

Marshall Henderson needs to quit running his mouth. Having a good few games doesn’t make you a great player. I hope la salle kicks his butt

As much as I hate Marshall Henderson I did pick Ole Miss to beat Wisconsin…therefore making my bracket not as pathetic as it could’ve been

It’s interesting that both of the D1 schools Marshall Henderson attended prior to Ole Miss aren’t in the tourney, &the Rebels beat a 5 seed.
