Photos of UCF’s Tacko Fall go viral
Tacko Fall, the tallest man at the NCAA Tournament, got a lot of viral attention when his UCF Knights took on the VCU Rams in Friday night’s first round matchup.
Fall stands at 7-6, and looked every bit of it when he was interviewed by CBS’s Tracy Wolfson, who’s a good two feet shorter than he is.

Fall towering over a reporter is one thing. Fall being about as tall as one of his opponents while on his knees is even more hilarious. For context, Marcus Evans, the VCU player standing next to Fall, is listed at 6-2.
I saw this pic of @tackofall99 & @TracyWolfson earlier and now this @CBSSports screengrab, and I’m totally ready for Tacko’s post-basketball career to be about him standing next to things, Yao Ming-style. (And about biochem & engineering since apparently he’s badass at those too) pic.twitter.com/dulK9AK5XW

The internet loves tall people next to short people, and Fall really fits the bill. Expect him to garner a lot of attention when he goes up against Zion Williamson and Duke in the second round.
