If all goes according to plan tonight, Marshall Henderson will set a new Southeastern Conference record.

Henderson's first made 3-pointer for Ole Miss will mark the 61st consecutive game that he made at least one shot from behind the arc. History suggests he'll pass former Arkansas standout Pat Bradley shortly after tonight's game against Alabama (7 p.m., ESPN3) begins.

Ole Miss' senior guard set a national record with 394 3-point attempts last season, and the 138 that went through were the most in SEC history. But this record will speak to his consistency: 61 games played, 61 games with at least one 3-pointer.

He's, of course, done more than make one a game. Henderson leads the nation with 4.5 made 3s per game, is third in the SEC in scoring (19.5 points per game) and has improved his 3-point shooting percentage this season (36.7 percent, 108-of-294).

"He can miss five, then come back and hit 10 in a row," guard Martavious Newby said. "We love him on the team."

On Ole Miss' career lists, Henderson is 10 points behind Rod Barnes for 22nd on the career scoring list, with 1,191. Ole Miss is guaranteed at least five more games, and just keeping with his average could push him near the top-15. The odyssey of Henderson's career — from Utah to Texas Tech to South Plains Junior College to Ole Miss for the last two seasons — has made it impossible for him to challenge the school's career scoring marks or the SEC's career record for 3s. But he'll go down as one of the top scorers in Ole Miss history, and the biggest two-year sensation since at least Gerald Glass in the late 1980s.
