Antoine Mason (born May 24, 1992) is an American basketball player, currently playing for the Fujian Lightning of the Chinese National Basketball League (NBL). He spent his first three years of college eligibility at Niagara University. He then transferred to Auburn University. Mason went undrafted in the 2015 NBA draft and subsequently signed with Apollon Limassol in Cyprus.
Mason joined Niagara as a freshman in 2010–11. He played in three games before suffering a foot injury that ended his season. The following year, he started every game and was named to the MAAC All-Rookie team.
In 2012–13, Mason scored 18.7 points per game to rank second in the MAAC. He was named to the All-MAAC first team and the MAAC All-Tournament team. As of March 8, 2014, he was averaging 25.6 points per game to rank second in NCAA Division I.
On May 21, 2014, and upon the conclusion of his redshirt junior season, he announced that he would be transferring for the 2014–15 season. The NCAA did not make him wait a season for transferring since he had already earned his undergraduate degree.

In the 2017-18 season, he played with the Halifax Hurricanes of NBL Canada and averaged 20.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Mason was named to the Second Team All-NBLC.
