Summary:

Frank Mason is an aggressive, attack minded combo guard that excels at scoring on hard drives to the basket.​  He has great speed, body control, and finishing ability that allows him to regularly garner scores off the dribble.​

He also is a good defensive player that can often turn steals into fast break points, and he will draw lots of fouls upon opposing defenses.  He may still need to improve his jump shot and playmaking skills, as tougher opponents may throw tougher game plans at him in the future.​

Mason had a great season as he played very well all season long, and he could be a solid second round prospect for an NBA team in the upcoming draft.
