Incredible photo of a 7-foot-6 basketball player guarding a 5-foot-8 point guard

Pretty, pretty big.

DURING’S OREGAN’S 91-63 win over UC Irvine, photographers captured an amazing photo of Oregon point guard Johnathan Loyd being guarded by a player who is nearly two feet taller.

Mamadou Ndiaye of UC Irvine is a freshman from Senegal and is listed a 7-foot-6 while Loyd is just 5-foot-8. Ndiaye is the tallest active basketball player in either the NBA or college basketball and is averaging 8.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks per game.
