Pearl lands Mason for Auburn
AUBURN, AL (TheSpread) – Bruce Pearl is attempting to build Auburn into a winner right away, and he got some help in doing so this week.
Auburn announced this week it would be adding Niagara transfer Antoine Mason to this year’s team. Mason finished the nation second in scoring last year, averaging an impressive 25.6 points per game.
Mason will be eligible to play right away for Pearl and the Tigers, as he graduated from Niagara and has a year of eligibility remaining. Mason is the third transfer that Pearl has been able to add to Auburn for the upcoming season.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Auburn has been given 300/1 odds to win the NCAA Tournament next season. Oddsmakers see Kentucky as the favorite with 5/1 odds while Arizona, Duke, North Carolina and Wisconsin each have 12/1 odds.
