Just pulled up Yale roster on Yale's website and Mason is on roster. Is that a change?

If you're talking about Mason being listed on the Yale Men's Basketball team roster, he has been there all along. Since he stayed in school last year, he was listed on their 2016-2017 roster, as well.

I just checked the Game Notes for this weekend's games vs Harvard and Dartmouth and cannot find him on "The Probable Lineup" section of Page 2, which includes "Starters" and "Off The Bench" groups. At his personal information area on Page 4, the first item notes he is out with an injury.

Maybe there's some update information, though.

They looked pretty good without him yesterday. At some point getting him back on the court may be counter productive as he will be a little rusty with the current lineup and he might lose a year of eligibility.

Huh? They lost to Harvard with a limited Aiken... at Home. They started the game going down 5-20. How is that looking pretty good?

I’d be beyond stunned if he didn’t play this season.

Great to see so much activity here on the Yale board. All those Bulldog fans chatting about their team. The level of fan engagement is truly inspiring.

I came in when it was 5-20 and h was 5 for 6 on 3s. From then on it was a different game. If I were a Penn fan, I wouldn't be taking y too lightly this weekend -- even with Penn's recent two big wins(?) over the Cs. Come to think of it, don't worry about them -- Penn will blow them away.

I always worry about Yale. I was referring to Mike Porter's post.

I worry about every game. Nothing is a sure thing in this league, and when you play 6 (Princeton) or 7 (Penn) of the last 9 on the road, you must hold serve on the home games before you hit the road.

I'd be surprised, he has to be looking at two years of eligibility at Baylor. Anyone know what sort of a program he is enrolling in? Most are two years programs and most players leave school before getting degree (per ncaa study)

He's already a post grad year and redshirt year in. He's gonna be 23 in May. He wants to have a pro career.

I don't think he's looking for another year of college eligibility. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

I’m absolutely worried about this weekend’s games, and always am for every game. My comment has nothing to do with that. Instead I was just pointing out your post made no sense as Yale has been on a pretty steady downward trend, and the Harvard game at home is one they’d hope to win. That’s not “playing pretty well”. They’d love to get Mason back ASAP. I’m worried about the game as is so with Mason, even more so.

This game worries me as well. However, even if Mason plays, I think it's likely he's going to be rusty. As great a player as he is, it's possible that he won't be a major factor this weekend. Give him a couple of weeks to re-acclimate.

And again-- really great to see the Yale fans having such a lively conversation on their discussion board!

I’d be way more worried about Brown than Yale. Tough matchup for Penn - when they go BA, Cambridge, Choh, Okolie plus one that’s gonna be a tough man matchup. Frankly might be best served to go back to the 1-3-1. Zone really frustrated the Bears versus Dartmouth. But that’s obviously not Penn’s identity this year. A tightly called game could spell real problems.

Maybe, but we have the athletic advantage. I don't think Brown will be able to get its shots like it does against teams like Dartmouth. But no game is easy in this league these days.

Don’t know how athletic you think Harvard is, but Brown got downhill on Harvard at will during that game. Think you might be underestimating what Brown can put on the floor at times.

Yeah I’ve seen Brown play a few times and they have plenty of athleticism. Cambridge and Choh both have had multiple alley oops or close attempts in games and Anderson is super quick at PG. Both are concerning games but I worry about them all.

I think Penn needs to shoot much better this weekend to get results we hope for...
