Game's tallest player Tacko Fall and UCF ready for NCAAs

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) The tallest man in college basketball is finally on the game's grandest stage - 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall is set for the NCAA Tournament.

Fall's ninth-seeded UCF (23-8) open East Region play Friday night against No. 8 seed VCU (25-7).

"For me, for us, I would say it means everything," said Fall, who's been the tallest player in college since joining UCF in 2016. The native of Senegal entered prep basketball as a project and slowly worked his way into a key performer to help the Knights make the NCAAs for the first time since 2005.
