ORLANDO – UCF men’s basketball head coach Johnny Dawkins announced on Saturday that Tacko Fall will miss the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury. Fall, who has battled through the injury all season, will have surgery this month to repair the issue.

Fall is expected to make a full recovery, and the UCF men’s basketball program wishes him all the best during this process. 

No further information is available at this time.

Statement from Head Coach Johnny Dawkins: “It’s unfortunate for any young man to miss this amount of time playing the game that he loves due to an injury. Our top priority at UCF is to maintain the well-being of our student-athletes, so our main concern right now is getting Tacko back to being 100 percent healthy.”

Statement from Tacko Fall: “Injuries are unfortunate, but they are just part of the game. It pains me that I won’t be able to be out there and compete with my brothers, however I’ll still keep cheering and being the best teammate I can possibly be. Great things are still ahead for us.”
