Mason played in just three games last season after tearing a tendon in his left foot. He had surgery in December and was cleared to return to the court for offseason voluntary workouts in early June.
``Having been out for almost the whole year, I watched and learned a lot,'' said Mason, the son of former New York Knick Anthony Mason. ``I can't wait to go out and perform with my team on the court this season.''
Mason was a Big East honorable mention pick after his junior season in 2007-08 when he led the team in scoring with a 14.0 average.
