Mason has elected to transfer to Niagara for the 2014-15 season, ESPN.com reports.

After graduating from Niagara this past spring, Mason will be eligible to play immediately for Auburn, becoming the third transfer to join the program since Bruce Pearl was hired as head coach. The nation's leading returning scorer after averaging 25.6 points per game for Niagara, Mason figures to assume much of the offensive burden in the backcourt for the Tigers.

Mason has decided to transfer from Niagara for his final season of eligibility in 2014-15, CBS Sports reports.

The nation's leading returning scorer at 25.6 points per game, Mason graduated this month, which allows him to play immediately for another program. Aside from the superb scoring output, he averaged modest counting stats -- 3.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals in 37.6 minutes -- while knocking down 44.0 percent from the floor and 72.8 percent from the charity stripe.

Mason is college basketball's leading scorer so far this season at 27.7 points per game, which is nearly three points per game more than the next closest scorer.

Mason has been Niagara's go to scorer all season and shows no signs of slowing down. Niagara's schedule does not appear to get any stiffer in upcoming games, so look for Mason to continue score as the season progresses.

Mason scored 39 points in Sunday's win over Brown, connecting on 3-of-5 three-pointers while making 14 of 17 free throws. Mason had a modest two rebounds, but added six steals.

Yes, it was Brown, but Mason has been doing this all season and the big numbers should continue once the Purple Eagles move to the conference portion of their schedule. Mason will see much attention, but he's also talented enough and gets enough volume that he's always going to get his share of buckets, plus he has a real knack for getting to the free throw line with a whopping 10.0 average on made freebies per game. Mason is now averaging 29.1 points per game, easily leading the country.

Through two games Mason is averaging 29.5 points a game and has played 98.8 percent of Niagara's minutes, second in the nation to West Virginia's Juwan Staten 99.1, The Buffalo News reports.

Niagara had some turnover from last season, so it's become obvious quickly that the son of former NBA tough guy Anthony Mason is going to be the lead dog this season for the Purple Eagles. Mason is also averaging 4.0 rebounds per game and 11 free throws made per game.

Mason returned from an ankle injury to score 20 points in Saturday's win over Northwestern State.

This was one of Bracket Buster Saturday's more interesting games, with both teams known for their high-scoring ways, and in the end Mason's successful return helped Niagara get a win over a very strong mid-major opponent. Mason may not be quite 100 percent, as he missed the last four games with the Purple Eagles in the heart of their stretch run to try and lock up the MAAC regular season title, but he's such a good scorer (18.9 points per game) that you probably want to make sure he's lineup right away.

Mason injured his ankle in a double overtime loss to Loyola last Saturday and was unable to play in Thursday's game against Rider, The Buffalo News reports.

Mason is one of the better players in the MAAC and leads the Purple Eagles with 18.9 points per game so his absence isn't an easy one to cover, as evidenced by the conference leaders falling to a middling Rider team Thursday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Through eight games, Mason leads Niagara with an 18.6 scoring average.

The sophomore guard also chips in with 4.1 RPG and 1.0 steals per game, while averaging 0.9 three-pointers. Given that Niagara always plays an up-tempo offense under coach Joe Mihalich, Mason should remain a good stat-filler once the schedule becomes heavy with conference play after the holidays.
