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

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Tacko Fall had 10 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks as ninth-seeded UCF won its first NCAA Tournament game, a 73-58 victory over No. 8 seed VCU on Friday night.

The 7-foot-6 Fall barely left his feet to haul in some rebounds as the Rams helplessly swiped at missed shots and struggled to find open space on drives to their baskets when the Knights' towering center was nearby.

VCU tried many things to keep him from getting involved, including sending two people to face guard Fall - or come as close as possible to a player who stands more than a half-foot taller than anyone on the Rams' roster.
