Basketball is now an international game.  And the NCAA tournament has featured some excellent players from all over the world.  One of them played in the epic game between Duke, the number one seed in the entire tournament, and the University of Central Florida.  After an amazing last five minutes of play, Duke won the game by the thinnest of margins, 77-76.

Born in Senegal,  Tacko Fall (and here) plays college basketball for the UCF. At 7 ft 6 inches, he is one of the tallest living people in the world.  In the game against Duke, Fall had a huge impact and helped UCF almost pull off what would have been a huge upset.
