KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy compares watching Marshall Henderson to watching NASCAR.

The wrecks are both unpredictable and inevitable.

The Rebels' colorful, polarizing guard drew plenty of attention on Thursday in Kansas City, where No. 12 seed Ole Miss is preparing to play fifth-seeded Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament Friday.

When the Rebels' locker room opened, dozens of reporters squeezed through the doorway and chased Henderson back to his seat. There, he was grilled about everything from his antics to the Badgers to the fact that he was not voted first-team All-SEC by the coaches or the media. He said that last issue "was pretty dumb."
