Duke star Zion Williamson will have his work cut out for him if he tries to dunk over UCF’s Tacko Fall in the second round of the NCAA tournament, because the 7-foot-6 center is not about to make it easy for him.
“It’s very hard [to dunk on me],” Fall told NCAA.com on Friday night.
“I mean, I won’t allow it. I won’t allow it. I won’t allow him putting me on one of his highlight tapes.”
Williamson, the nation’s best dunker at 6-foot-7 and potentially the NBA Draft’s No. 1 pick later this year, has more bulk and athleticism than Fall but has never conquered a player of his height at the rim. Williamson scored 25 points in Duke’s first-round win over North Dakota State.
“He’s someone, pretty much, we’ve never seen in weight, size. He’s immense, and he’s so quick,” Fall said. “But the coaches are going to have a great game plan, especially Coach [Johnny] Dawkins, I feel like, because he played for Duke, so he’s going to have to help us out a lot.”
Fall scored 13 points and pulled down 18 rebounds in UCF’s first-round against VCU, a notable performance per Knights head coach and former Duke star Johnny Dawkins.
Can’t wait to see Zion throw one down on Tacko.
You know the cameras will be there to catch it.
