OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State coach Rick Ray has issued an apology after television replays showed him directing comments at Mississippi's Marshall Henderson in the final seconds of Saturday's game.

Henderson was walking off the court with 6.3 seconds left when Ray said something as the guard walked past. The Rebels won 82-63 and Henderson scored 19 points.

Ray issued an apology on Instagram on Sunday saying he "responded inappropriately to an Ole Miss player yesterday in our game." Ray said he "reached out to (Ole Miss) Coach (Andy) Kennedy immediately to apologize and subsequently to the player."

Ray added there "is no reason for a coach to ever have interaction with an opposing player, ever, regardless of the circumstances."

Henderson has a reputation for on-court theatrics that irritate opposing fans and players.
