Badgers men's basketball: Mississippi's Marshall Henderson remains loud, proud

2013-03-19T04:45:00Z Badgers men's basketball: Mississippi's Marshall Henderson remains loud, proudJIM POLZIN | Wisconsin State Journal | jpolzin@madison.com | 608-252-6473 madison.com

It was quite an eventful 24 hours for Marshall Henderson after the talented — and brash — junior guard led Mississippi into the NCAA tournament.

The highlights include ripping coaches in the Southeastern Conference, apparently partying through the night with friends and complimenting University of Wisconsin senior forward Mike Bruesewitz on Twitter.

The fifth-seeded Badgers (23-11) open the NCAA tournament against the Rebels (26-8) at 11:40 a.m. on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

After leading Ole Miss to a 66-63 over Florida in the SEC tournament title game on Sunday in Nashville, Tenn., Henderson was asked about being named the most valuable player of the tournament after being relegated to the coaches' All-SEC second team earlier in the week.

"I guess that's just a shot at all the other coaches out here," Henderson told reporters. "They're losers. They didn't win the tournament, we did. We went in with a chip on our shoulder. Maybe they'll be smarter next year."

Instead of resting up for the NCAA tournament, Henderson got back to Oxford, Miss., and celebrated with some friends.

At 4:22 a.m. Monday, he tweeted he had just won "10 in a row in pong." Henderson left it to his followers' imagination whether he was referring to ping pong or beer pong, a popular drinking game among college students.

Finally, Henderson had a shout-out for Bruesewitz. If the two have something in common, it's they both draw a lot of attention of opposing fans: Bruesewitz for his curly red hair, Henderson for his bravado.

"Can't wait to hoop against MIKE BRUESEWITZ!!!" Henderson tweeted. "That dude got some serious swag!!!"

    Henderson will choke on his words Friday ... Bruesewitz will not step out of his role in response to anything he hears ... Badgers (as a team) will shut down the mouth and dismantle Ole Miss.
