Marshall Henderson didn’t have the greatest game of his career today but he did earn some attention from LeBron James.
Henderson went 1 for 11 during the first half but Ole Miss continued to give their shooter the green light. Henderson kept shooting and eventually started to connect. He hit a couple of big threes and ended the game with 19 points as Ole Miss upset the Wisconsin Badgers 57-46.
Henderson has a lot of critics for his “I’m going to shoot the ball no matter what” approach to the game but he also has some big name fans.
You know, people like LeBron James.
James on his Twitter account: “Man that dude Henderson from Ole Miss got the greenest light in basketball history!! Hahaha.”
Or, is that an insult?
Henderson definitely had the green light today and in the end it paid off but his play probably won’t get Ole Miss to the Final Four.
After the game, Charles Barkley said: “I have never had a problem with a guy having supreme confidence… Some guys fold under the spotlight when things aren’t going good. I agree with Lebron, too. He’s got the greenest light in the world, but he has to back it up. He didn’t back it up in the first half, backed it up in the second half.”
Are you a fan of Marshall Henderson?
Henderson admitted that today wasn’t his best game but that isn’t hurting his confidence.
