Henderson apologizes to Ole Miss fans
OXFORD, Miss. (AP)
The 6-foot-2 junior averaged more than 20 points per game this season, leading the Rebels to their first NCAA tournament since 2002. But Henderson became more known for his exuberant celebrations and trash talking than his scoring ability. Multiple media outlets also reported that Henderson made an obscene gesture toward the crowd following the team's season-ending loss to LaSalle.
Henderson wrote that he plays the game with ''a lot of passion, and sometimes that passion boils over.'' He also apologized to ''anyone I offended'' and that he ''can take things too far.''
