Here's what happens when two 7'6" centers meet for opening tip-off (VIDEO)

The UC-Irvine Anteaters played the UCF Knights in Orlando Wednesday night, but the really big news was that it was the first time two 7'6" players ever appeared on a basketball court at the same time.

UC-Irvine has Mamadou N'diaye, a junior from Dakar, Senegal and UCF has Tacko Fall, a freshman who comes from the same home city — both seven-and-a-half footers. 

And since neither player has ever faced an opponent who even comes close to being their size, everyone wondered what the highly anticipated opening tip-off would be like.

Not exactly Russell vs. Chamberlain, but historic nonetheless.
