Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy believes his flamboyant star Marshall Henderson can get through the season incident-free.

Kennedy said Wednesday at Southeastern Conference media days that "if I was a betting man, I would say that his lesson has been learned."

He says it remains to be determined how many games the suspended Henderson will miss to start the season.

Kennedy says that's "a fluid situation," but that Henderson has so far done everything he's had to do to get back on the court. The high-scoring guard was suspended from the program in July shortly before Oxford police confirmed that he had been found with what appeared to be a small amount of marijuana and cocaine. He was only cited for not having proof of insurance.
