At any athletic level, there is an unwritten, but universal rule that states one must not, by any means, trash talk the best player unless he or she can back the talk.
The No. 9 UCF Knights face the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils in the second round of the East Region on Sunday and it's fair to say that Duke will be motivated to the nth degree.
Knights' 7'6" senior center Tacko Fall broke the aforementioned cardinal rule of trash talk by claiming that force of nature, Zion Williamson, will NOT put him on his highlight tape on Sunday.

Anybody else taking Duke on the money line? What about the spread? We don't care. Duke by 100.
