Tall Fall leads ninth-seeded UCF to first NCAA win over VCU

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Tacko Fall was huge factor in bringing UCF its first-ever NCAA Tournament victory. Now, the Knights will see how college basketball's tallest player at 7-foot-6 can perform against overall top seed Duke.

Fall had 13 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks as ninth-seeded UCF defeated No. 8 seed VCU 73-58 on Friday night to set up a match with the Blue Devils on Sunday for a spot in the Sweet 16.

"Obviously, we had the size advantage," Fall said. "We'll have the size advantage against any team we play. Obviously, we took advantage of it."
