Column: Like predecessors, Mason should grow out of inconsistency, into talent

In Kansas University's meeting with Florida on Nov. 25, 2006, the Jayhawks brought a quick, confident relentless competitor of a freshman off the bench. Sherron Collins triggered the imagination the way Frank Mason does now. Collins didn’t have it that night in Las Vegas against the Gators. Three seasons later, he was a first-team All-American. No reason to think Mason can’t make the same strides and earn the same accolades. Column by Tom Keegan
