OXFORD, Miss. -- OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi's Marshall Henderson has been suspended three regular-season games this season, including the first two Southeastern Conference games.

The school announced the suspension on Tuesday morning. The 6-foot-2 guard was indefinitely suspended in July after police found him with small amounts of marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop. Henderson was not arrested.

Henderson will miss the season opener against Troy on Nov. 8 and SEC games against Auburn (Jan. 9) and Mississippi State (Jan. 11). He will also miss the team's exhibition game on Friday night.

Henderson has had both on-and off-the-court issues at Ole Miss. The school said in a statement that Henderson's suspension is a result of his "conduct during the 2012-13 season, SEC and NCAA Tournaments, and his behavior since the end of the season."
