Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson earned the Rebels’ first SEC Player of the Week award for the 2012-2013 season.

The Ole Miss guard gained national attention for his buzzer-beating 35-foot jumper to force overtime at Vanderbilt, a game the Rebels eventually won 89-79. This morning, Henderson was named SEC player of the week.

Henderson scored 26 at Vanderbilt. He followed that up with only 16 points in the Rebels’ 76-64 win over Arkansas, but against the Razorbacks Henderson added five rebounds and five steals and hit the timely shots – along with Nick Williams – to help the Rebels pull away.

The win moved Ole Miss to 4-0 in the SEC for the first time since the 1936-37 season.
