Antoine Mason (born May 24, 1992) is an American basketball player for the Halifax Hurricanes of the National Basketball League of Canada (NBL). He spent his first three years of college eligibility at Niagara University. He then transferred to Auburn University. Mason went undrafted in the 2015 NBA draft and subsequently signed with Apollon Limassol in Cyprus.
Mason was born in Queens, New York, in 1992. He is the son of late former NBA player Anthony Mason and Latifa Whitlock Mason. He has one brother, Anthony Jr.
Mason attended New Rochelle High School and was named the school's athlete of the year as a senior.
Mason joined Niagara as a freshman in 2010–11. He played in three games before suffering a foot injury that ended his season. The following year, he started every game and was named to the MAAC All-Rookie team.
In 2012–13, Mason scored 18.7 points per game to rank second in the MAAC. He was named to the All-MAAC first team and the MAAC All-Tournament team. As of March 8, 2014, he was averaging 25.6 points per game to rank second in NCAA Division I.
On May 21, 2014, and upon the conclusion of his redshirt junior season, he announced that he would be transferring for the 2014–15 season. The NCAA did not make him wait a season for transferring since he had already earned his undergraduate degree.
On December 23, 2014 Mason scored his 2,000th career point in a 61–60 win over Texas Southern.
After going undrafted in the 2015 NBA draft, Mason signed with Apollon Limassol of the Cypriot League.
