Mason’s Stats for the Week

  • Mason picked a good time for his third double-double of the season. The SAGU guard/forward went 12-19 from the field scoring 28 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. The Lions needed every bit of it as they pulled out a big road win against Oklahoma City University (OCU) on Thursday by the score of 102.90.
  • Mason followed it up with a balanced stat line against Southwestern Christian University (SCU) on Saturday. The Eagles gave Mason a lot of attention, but he still managed 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists as the Lions won in a runaway 98-60.
  • The talented sophomore averaged 23.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 2.5 assists all while shooting 58.8% from the field for the week.

Additional Notes

  • Mason has been the go-to-guy on a very balanced Lions team. He has consistently proven that he can be depended upon as he has averaged 22.3 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 2.2 APG, and 1.05 SPG while shooting 63% from the field for the season.
  • The Lions’ forward has electrified the crowd with his thunderous dunks and clutch buckets all year, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. This is his third SAC Player of the Week honor. The Lions, as a team, have had five SAC POW honors on the season. The other two came from Joshua Kashila ( JR/Euless, TX ). A SAGU player has won the honor in three consecutive weeks.
  • Nyk’s special season has put him in the conversation for the best player in the country as he ranks 6th in scoring and 7th in field goal percentage in NAIA Division-I.
