Antoine Mason Transfers To Auburn

Jun 11, 2014 12:59 PM

Antooine Mason will transfer from Niagara to Auburn.

Mason, a 6-foot-3 guard who averaged 25.6 points last season, will be eligible this season for Pearl and the Tigers due to the NCAA's transfer rule, which allows players who have graduated and have eligibility remaining to be able to play immediately.

Mason is the son of Anthony Mason.

Mason chose Auburn over Providence.

"It was a tough decision," Mason told ESPN.com. "It came down to intangibles."

Mason is the third transfer Pearl and his staff have added since he took over for Tony Barbee.
