UCF big man Tacko Fall shatters NCAA all-time record for career field-goal percentage
At 7-6, UCF center Tacko Fall is one of the biggest people ever to play NCAA basketball. He often towers over opponents, sometimes by more than a foot.

Because of that height, he’s been able to become a dominant post presence over the past few years for the Knights, throwing down effortless dunks and making close-range shots.
After his college career came to an end with a heartbreaking loss to Duke on Sunday, it became official. Fall is now the NCAA’s all-time leader in career field-goal percentage, finishing at 73.95 percent:
One last Tacko Fall update. After shooting 7-for-10 in his final college game, he finishes his career 497-for-662 from the field, 73.95%. He has broken the all-time career field goal record, (67.75%, set in 1981 by Oregon State's Steve Johnson), by OVER SIX PERCENT. Unreal.

That’s an insane margin to break the record by, and as Rodger Sherman mentioned, Fall would have had to go 0-for-64 against Duke to not break the record.
What a career it was for Fall. He will likely get a shot at an NBA career, and his career field-goal percentage record should stand for a long time to come.
