College/International Summary

Tacko Fall played for four seasons as a center for the University of Central Florida. His statistics were rather consistent throughout each of his collegiate seasons, averaging 10.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game during his tenure. During his freshman season (2015-16), Fall started 26 of 30 games, but he only averaged 17.6 minutes per contest. As a sophomore, his playing time would peak at 26.3 minutes per game. That year, the Senegal native was the tallest player in all of college basketball. By the end of the season, Fall was named the AAC Defensive Player of the Year, aided by his 2.6 blocks per game. The bespectacled center faced adversity during his junior season. A shoulder injury would limit Fall's production to only 16 games. He would return in 2018-19 to start 33 games and deliver 11.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game during his senior season. That year, Fall's UCF Knights would finish 24-9 and qualify for the NCAA Tournament. They would defeat VCU in the first round but lose to Duke in the second round of the tourney.

Near triple-double in loss
CMaine Red Claws   G League (Celtics)
March 8, 2020
Fall generated 16 points (7-7 FG, 2-5 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and nine blocked shots over 25 minutes in Sunday's 120-112 home loss to Windy City.
ANALYSIS
Tacko was one swat short of a triple-double in this disappointing loss to Windy City. Fall started the game, but five personal fouls limited his playing time. Maine also has center Vincent Poirier on loan from the Celtics eating into Fall's playing time, yet Fall still posted a great stat line. The Claws will look to turn things around Wednesday at Delaware.
