Mismatch! Mismatch! During Oregon’s 91-63 win over UC Irvine on Tuesday night, Ducks point guard Johnthan Loyd somehow got matched up with Mamadou Ndiaye for a brief moment. Why is this noteworthy? Well, have a look at this photo and you’ll get the point:

Loyd is one of the smaller players in the country, standing at a modest 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Ndiaye, on the other hand, is the tallest player in America that is on an active roster. The intriguing NBA prospect is 7-foot-6 and has scouts drooling.
Oregon won the game, but they’ll probably try to avoid this type of situation in the future. We wouldn’t want to see someone get stepped on like a bug.
