Ole Miss hurt its NCAA Tournament hopes (and Marshall Henderson) during a brutal loss to South Carolina (VIDEO)

The end of the Ole Miss-South Carolina SEC Tournament quarterfinal game was about as crazy as it gets.

With the Rebels trailing by three points with under 10 seconds left, Jarvis Summers buried the game-tying 3-pointer and was fouled by a Gamecock defender. The ensuing free throw gave the Rebels a one-point lead with 3.3 seconds left.

It also got noted Ole Miss alum Marshall Henderson going.

But the game was far from over.

South Carolina guard Tyrone Johnson was fouled shooting a 3-pointer of his own on the next possession and made all three free throws. Johnson’s free throws gave the Gamecocks a dramatic 60-58 win over the Rebels.

This late change of events left Marshall Henderson (and Ole Miss fans everywhere) completely stunned.

Ole Miss was already squarely on the bubble entering this game and a loss to the Gamecocks might significantly hurt their chances of making the field of 68. Now they’ll have to sweat it out and wait and see what happens the rest of the week.
