The Sporting News' Ryan Fagan tweeted a photo of Henderson's new look during Ole Miss' 61-58 loss Thursday night at Kansas State, the Rebels' first loss of the season.

Henderson has been one of the more controversial college basketball figures in recent memory. His on-court behavior, fueled by his infamous trash-talking, has drawn the ire of several opposing programs through the course of his collegiate career, first at Utah, and then at Mississippi.
The NCAA reprimanded Henderson for making an "inappropriate gesture" after the Rebels lost to La Salle in the NCAA tournament last spring.
The school suspended him in July, just prior to an Oxford, Miss., police report confirming that Henderson had been found with small amounts of marijuana and cocaine, ESPN.com reported. He was cited only for not having proof of insurance.
Henderson failed a drug test, and Mississippi suspended him for three games (two of them SEC games next month) plus an exhibition game.
At the end of a Nov. 29 game against Georgia Tech, a game Ole Miss would win 77-67, Henderson was knocked to the floor late in the game and reacted to it. CBSSports.com reported that two Mississippi teammates ran to usher him off the floor as the two teams were engaged in the postgame handshake.
Henderson had to be separated from the Yellow Jackets and blurted out some disparaging remarks about them.
When asked about Henderson's ability to maintain more composure and signs of more maturity, Kennedy said, "It remains a work in progress."
