Rick Ray invites Marshall Henderson over for Fondue

YEAHHHHH! FONDUE!!!! - Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

After the two finished squaring off on the hardwood yesterday, they discussed upcoming dinner plans.

After being defeated by Mississippi State in Starkville earlier in the month, it's safe to say that the Ole Miss Rebels wanted revenge badly.  They got that revenge with a blowout win Saturday over the Bulldogs at Tad Smith Coliseum, 82-63.  Though the game would become heated at times, it would simmer down quite a bit at the end as players and coaches exchanged pleasantries and well-wishes for the remainder of the season.

One clip that has been making the rounds since yesterday's game shows Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson and MSU head coach Rick Ray chatting it up like two old chums with just a few seconds left in the game.  If you look closely, you can see Marshall say something to the effect of "hey coach Ray, would you still like to have dinner sometime soon?  What is something you have not eaten recently?"  Ray responded, "Fondue".

We caught up with coach Ray later in the evening, and he had this to add about the conversation between he and Marshall:

You know he's such a delightful young man, both on and off the court, and I was interested in spending more time getting to know him.  I am very pleased that he accepted my invitation to come over and eat dinner with me and my family sometime soon, and I look forward to it.  Fondue is one of my favorites.

While it's unclear when the two plan to sit down and break bread together, or what type of Fondue they plan to dine on, it is clear from the clip and Ray's comments that they have grown closer over the two seasons that they've competed against each other.  What a great story to see two members of rival teams that have every excuse to hate each other coming together in such a way.
