Maybe some day, as a little joke during his senior season, tough-as-nails Kansas point guard Frank Mason will don shoulder pads for basketball practice.

“He wears compression shorts that are padded. Other than that, I don’t know of any (protective gear),” Devonté Graham, Mason’s backcourt partner, said with a smile.

Yet Graham agrees: the more cushion, the better for the 5-foot-11 Mason, who had to lead KU in both intentional (floor burns) and unintentional (hard foul) falls to the floor a year ago.

“He doesn’t fall as much (in practice) as he does in games,” Graham said. “He definitely flies in there to the paint and finishes. You can’t really explain it. People think he’s so small. When he goes in there, it’s like, ‘What is he doing?’

“He’s strong. He can finish above 6-10, 7-foot (players). The things he does in his body is pretty amazing.”
