Marshall Henderson Thrilled LeBron James Tweeted About Him

Despite a slow start against Wisconsin, the Marshall Henderson Show made it to the weekend. The Ole Miss star shot the ball 21 times, missing 12 of his first 13 and yet somehow still finished with a team and game-high 19 points as his team pulled off the 5-12 upset.

As Henderson kept shooting, and shooting, the Rebels' leading scorer even caught the attention of three-time NBA MVP LeBron James.

After Ole Miss' upset win, Henderson seemed overjoyed to land on James' radar. Not surprisingly, he used the occasion to fire a shot at his critics.

Judging from Rebels coach Andy Kennedy's comments during his postgame press conference, James might want to watch their third-round matchup against No. 13 La Salle.

"We've seen his show before. A lot of guys, you go 0-for-5 and it's going to be a long night. If you go 5-for-5 it's going to be a great night," Kennedy said, via the Associated Press. "He's been on both ends of the spectrum. As long as he's taking shots within our offense, our guys understand that. We were getting him looks. Then once he makes one or two, we keep feeding him."
