Marshall Henderson and the No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels overcame a woeful shooting performance for most of their second-round game against the No. 5 Wisconsin Badgers in NCAA Tournament action on Friday and pulled off a 57-46 upset victory at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
Henderson made just one of his first 13 shots before hitting a three-pointer at the 11:25 mark in the second half to cut Ole Miss' six-point deficit in half. Henderson drilled another trey two minutes later to tie the game and cap off an 8-2 run. After Murphy Holloway gave Ole Miss the lead with a pair of buckets with less than nine minutes remaining, Henderson extended the Rebels' lead to six with a layup and another three-pointer.
The Rebels' energetic junior guard finished with 19 points on 6-of-21 shooting. Holloway chipped in 10 points and nine rebounds for Ole Miss, which outscored Wisconsin in the second half, 35-21, and held Wisconsin to a 25.4-percent clip from the floor, to win its first tournament game since 2001.
Ole Miss will face either Kansas State or La Salle in the third round on Sunday. An updated West Region bracket can be found here.
