Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray wasn't too fond of Ole Miss's Marshall Henderson yapping near the end of the Rebels 82-63 beat down of the Bulldogs. As Henderson walked by Ray with 6.3 seconds remaining he appeared to say, “F*ck you, State,” and then it appears as if Ray said, “F*ck you,” back at Henderson.
Rick Ray issued an apology Sunday afternoon for the incident...
“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.”
