On Friday, Fall made headlines by telling NCAA.com he wasn't interested in appearing as an extra on the next iteration of the Zion Williamson Dunk Project.

"It's very hard [to dunk on me]," Fall said. "I mean, I won't allow it. I won't allow it. I won't allow him putting me on one of his highlight tapes."

Countered Williamson at Saturday's media availability: "What is he supposed to say? Is he supposed to say I'm going to dunk on him? He said the right thing.

"He's a very unique player. I have a lot of respect for him to be that size and move the way he does and have that skill. ... We're going to have to come together as a team to figure out how to stop him."
