Tacko Fall has been the most dominant big man in college basketball this season.

Last week he averaged 25.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game while shooting 91% from the floor in wins against Miami (Ohio) and Bethune-Cookman.

UCF is 9-3 heading into an American Athletic Conference opener against Tulane (3-9) Wednesday on ASN.

Tacko posted a career high 31 points (11 of 12 field goals for 92%) while posting another double/double in leading the Knights to an 80-73 against Miami. He also grabbed 10 rebounds.

In a 71-41 win against Bethune-Cookman, Fall posted his seventh double/double this season (20 points and 12 rebounds) while shooting 10 of 11 from the floor (91%).

The 7-6 sophomore from Dakar, Senegal, leads the nation this season with 83.8% on field goals and is on pace to break the all-time accuracy mark.
