Seven-foot-six Mamadou N’Diaye made waves last season in college basketball when he helped UC Irvine reach the NCAA tournament. Wednesday night, N’Diaye finally had the chance to pick on someone his own size.

Irvine traveled to the University of Central Florida, where freshman Tacko Fall (also 7-6) stood opposite junior N’Diaye for the opening tip.

For the first time in college basketball history, two seven-foot-six players faced one another. There’s only one other matchup that comes to mind:

You could say Wednesday’s meeting was the “biggest” game ever witnessed at the collegiate level.

Yes, that’s 15 feet of human being right there, all from Dakar.

Both athletes were born in the Senegalese capital and N’Diaye’s brother, Ibrahim, actually convinced Fall to begin playing basketball.

What began as must-watch television, quickly turned to comic relief when both players whiffed on the jump ball to start the game.

The two players’ size didn’t necessarily play to their advantage on the offensive end as Fall and N’Diaye combined for 11 points. Fall got the better of his counterpart on the defensive end, however, showcasing his length here on one of his four rejections:

Though the head-to-head matchup of the two seven-footers couldn’t quite live up to the hype, the game surely did with UC-Irvine squeaking by UCF, 61-60, in overtime.
