For the second time in his basketball career, Micah Mason (Highlands) was featured in Sports Illustrated. Most recently, the Duquesne sophomore guard was pictured in a graphic featuring “Record Sitters,” accomplished players who did not appear in the NCAA Tournament. Mason's recognition came from his nation-leading 3-point percentage. He made 65 of 116 3s this season (.560) to lead the Dukes (13-17). When he was a junior at Highlands, he made the magazine's “Faces in the Crowd” section after scoring 64 points in a game.
