He is an athlete of the Mainland Eagles Academy which has produced New Zealand players Max Darling (Illawarra Hawks), Taylor Britt (Perth Wildcats), Mary Goulding (Fordham University), Sam Timmins (University of Washington), Angus McWilliam (TCU/UC Riverside), Quinn Clinton (St Mary’s), Jackson Stent (Houston Baptist), Max de Geest (Long Beach), Tom Webley (University of Hartford), Amiee Book (Cal State Fullerton) and Tsubasa Nisbet (Georgia Southern).

Coaches Evaluation:

Mick Downer (Mainland Eagles Academy Head Coach, Former ANBL Coach):

Mason is a REALLY exciting young player. He has lots of strengths that are relevant to the collegiate and professional game. He’s long and versatile and plays with a high motor in both directions. Hustles on defence, runs lanes hard and first to the floor in loose ball contests. He goes hard at practise and enjoys physicality. Can stretch the floor from the 3, put the ball to the floor and finish above and around the rim as well as a strong mid-range pull up. He’s a popular guy in the locker room who’s friendly, polite and has an easy nature about him. Really coachable and works hard to improve.

He’s overcome some growth related injuries as a teenager and showed great discipline and resilience. He’s easy to coach and wants to keep improving. Mason needs to keep developing his basketball IQ, ask questions and seek feedback, and work on his overall strength. He will do so given his dedication to training and desire to improve. Mason has a really high ceiling, and with great support and investment the sky is the limit for him.

College Priorities:

Mason is wanting to study a history or archaeology degree.

Mason is #21 White in above Sal's NZ NBL Game
Mason is #21 Red in above Sal's NZ NBL Game
