For all the improvement Ole Miss’ basketball and football teams have seen, a negative light has been cast upon them.
Marshall Henderson, who placed the basketball team on his back and took them to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament, is suspended for breaking team rules.
It has been said that it is related to failed drug tests and SI’s Andy Glockner discusses what might be at issue.
“So, it seems pretty clear that Ole Miss knew it had a growing problem on its hands at least a month and a half ago,” he wrote, “and seems pretty safe to conclude that Henderson either failed another drug test subsequent to this reported staff intervention, and/or hasn’t taken ownership of the problem to the staff’s liking, leading to his indefinite suspension and reports of a possible rehab stint.”
The NCAA has suspended Rebels’ cornerback, Carlos Davis, for six games because he played six games last year, despite being academically ineligible. He recorded seven tackles last season.
