During the UCF vs USF game, ESPN tweeted a video showing USF’s Bo Zeigler throwing down a nice dunk BY 7’6 Tacko Fall. They labeled it “when you dunk over a 7-foot-6 defender…”
A bunch of people replied to let ESPN know Bo’s dunk was NOT ON the defender. Then the UCF Twitter account replied to ESPN with a video of AJ Davis dunking ON 7’6 player Mamadou Ndiaye with the following caption, “@espn an actual dunk over a 7-foot-6 defender (our apologies, @UCIAthletics)”
AJ, the son of former NBA player Antonio Davis, didn’t have any 7’6 defenders to dunk on on Wednesday but he did have this nasty dunk on his way to 16 points, 5 boards and 5 dimes as the Knights beat their Rival Bulls 75-64.
As for 7’6 Tacko Fall, he had 2 points, 6 boards and 3 blocks in just 18 minutes.
