OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi guard Marshall Henderson received a public reprimand from the NCAA on Wednesday because of his actions following a third-round loss during the NCAA tournament in March.
The NCAA said Henderson made an ``inappropriate gesture'' toward the crowd after losing to LaSalle.
Henderson averaged more than 20 points per game last season as the Rebels advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002, but was also a lightning rod for criticism because of his boisterous on-court personality.
Ole Miss released a statement from basketball coach Andy Kennedy on Wednesday, saying Henderson had ``accepted responsibility for his actions, and we are moving forward. We understand and appreciate the NCAA's stance on unsportsmanlike behavior.''
