Marshall Henderson’s brand of basketball can perhaps be best summed up by the famous Hooters slogan:

“Delightfully tacky, yet unrefined.”

Ole Miss star shooting guard continued to wow in the SEC tournament final on Sunday, dropping 21 points on the Florida Gators, taunting fans (as he’s wont to do) and earning his team an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament.

What did he do after? Braise a pork chop and queue up Doctor Zhivago on Netflix? A Lean night? 

No, Henderson kept shooting, first by calling the rest of the coaches and teams in the SEC "losers," and then switching his target to smaller, frothier receptacles later in the night.

As the tweets suggest, it would appear Ole Miss football player Denzel Nkemdiche and others hung out with Henderson later in the night Sunday and lost mightily in “pong” to the shooting guard.

For everyone on the underage-drinking alert, if the 22-year-old guard in fact imbibed, it was legal. But considering how handily he destroyed the competition in pong, he does appear a bit tuckered out.

We can hope this was just his Weekend at Bernie’s impersonation, but considering it’s Marshall Henderson we’re talking about here, there are at least 10 other reasons that could explain his strange posture.

Indeed, Henderson and No. 12 seed Ole Miss are definitely "still in this" and face the No. 5 seed Wisconsin Badgers on Friday.
