COLUMN: Saturday night’s often ugly, ultimately triumphant trip to Auburn — a place where so many Ole Miss basketball seasons past had hit a pot hole with a definitive “bad loss” in conference play — was marked more for Henderson’s postgame jersey-popping display to Tiger fans than anything on the court.

Marshall Henderson’s folk hero status grew again on Tuesday night, as Ole Miss came surging back to life to defeat Vanderbilt in overtime 89-79 at Memorial Gym. The win was Ole Miss’ first at Memorial Gym since 2001, the year they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee State taught Ole Miss a valuable lesson Saturday night: It’s all about your appetite.
The Rebels lost 65-62 at MTSU, their first of the season, in an effort characterized by coach Andy Kennedy as — at times — a case of the Blue Raiders’ senior-laden roster simply being hungrier than Ole Miss. (December 10, 2012, Page 1B)
