Ole Miss Guard Marshall Henderson Gives Florida Fans the Gator Chomp (GIF)
Ole Miss isn’t exactly a college basketball powerhouse. However, what they lack in NCAA Tournament pedigree, they make up for with cocky shooting guards with a knack for getting under people’s skin.
I am talking, of course, about Marshall Henderson, the most interesting player in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. This kid simply loves antagonizing people, loves being “the villain,” and loves hearing the boos when his name is read over the PA at an away game. We told you about some of his antagonizing antics back in January, and today we’re going to tell you about some more.
You see, Henderson was in rare form during and after the Rebels’ shocking victory over the Florida Gatos in the SEC title game. Not only did he chip in 21 points, three steals, and four rebounds, but he also ran along the Florida student section with about seven minutes left in the game to mock them with the Gator chomp.
Have a look:
Then, after the game, Henderson was a veritable quote machine. First he said, “Shout out to Doug Gottlieb, who said it was a travesty if we made the Tournament.” Then, when asked how he felt about getting snubbed for All-SEC honors, he responded, “Those coaches [who voted] are all losers right now. I’m not.” And finally, asked about the Gator taunt, he said, “I dreamed I gave them the Gator chomp. Then I woke up and said, ‘Hmmmm, gator bait.'”
So there you have it. Marshall Henderson: never a dull moment. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the Big Dance.
