10:44 AM ET 03.16 | Has there ever been a more despised SEC basketball player than Marshall Henderson? Henderson's splendid play (27 points) and emotional antics (taunting players and fans) were on display again tonight as Ole Miss rallied to defeat Missouri 64-62. There were taunts from Henderson to Missouri players, at one point causing a Mizzou assistant to furiously complain to a ref. There was jawing by Henderson to the Missouri fans as he gestured toward them. And at the end, there was Henderson standing on the scorers' table celebrating an SEC Tournament quarterfinal victory that may have put Ole Miss in the NCAA Tournament. "I'm a manipulator of sorts and I like messing with people's minds, and it's pretty funny to mess with people like that," Henderson said. "It's a freaking game. It's a basketball game. People take it so seriously that it's funny for a little white guy like me to just come around, talk trash to people and the fans. Like, what are you going to do in the stands? What am I going to do on the court to you in the stands? It's funny just to mess with people."

If the tourney is run by, or televised by, ESPN, then the SEC will get 14 tickets...
