Mamadou Ndiaye is a 7'6" freshman center on UC Irvine's basketball team, and the tallest player in college or the NBA. At one point in the team's loss to Oregon on Tuesday night, he was guarding Johnathan Loyd, a 5'8" point guard. Luckily for the internet, photographer Brian Davies was there to capture the almost 2 foot mismatch.

If Loyd was not calling for the ball and yelling "mouse in the house" he missed a once-in-a-lifetime comic opportunity.
