Mississippi needs Marshall Henderson to stay out of trouble and spark their offense.

Mississippi's Marshall Henderson will return to the court for Saturday's game against Coastal Carolina after being suspended for the season opener.

The Rebels hope the 6-foot-2 senior guard can add some scoring punch while keeping his behavior in check.

Henderson scored more than 20 points per game last season -- riling up opposing fans with some boisterous on-court antics in the process. He's also had off-the-court issues and was indefinitely suspended in July after police found him with small amounts of marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop, though he was not arrested.

Henderson was suspended three regular-season games by the school. He still must sit out the Rebels' first two Southeastern Conference games against Auburn (Jan. 9) and Mississippi State (Jan. 11).
