On the court, there is no denying his impact. Mason was a strong post presence for the Mocs throughout the season. He tallied 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per contest, both team highs earning All-Southern Conference mention (3rd Team Media) in the process.

Along with points and rebounds, Mason his squad in field goals made (173), field goals attempted (354) and blocks (29). He shot 48.9 percent from the field, 31,6 percent from three-point range and 71.8 percent from the free throw line.

Here are just a few of Z.’s season highlights:
