Rick Ray, Mississippi State coach, Apologized to Marshall Henderson for Cursing at Him

By Michael Shamburger

Rick Ray, the head coach of the Mississippi State basketball team, issued an apology Sunday afternoon to Marshall Henderson of Ole Miss. With six seconds left in the game, cameras caught Ray cursing at Henderson from the sideline.

"“I responded inappropriately to an Ole Miss player [Saturday] in our game,” Ray said in a statement he texted Sunday. “I reached out to [Ole Miss] coach [Andy] Kennedy immediately to apologize and subsequently to the player too. There is no reason for a coach to ever have interaction with an opposing player, ever, regardless of the circumstances. I was more upset with our performance than the player. I was totally at fault.”"

Ole Miss beat Mississippi State 82-63. Henderson finished the game 7 of 17 for 19 points and was 2 of 12 on three pointers.

It’s not like Marshall Henderson is the type of player that could possibly get under fans, players, or even a coach’s skin right?
