The squad he assembled won the 1997 African Championship and then went on to participate in the 1998 World Championship. Fall, who served as the director of the Africa 100 Camp in South Africa in 2003 and NBA without Borders Africa in 2004. He returns to Senegal during the summers, and he donates shoes and equipment and organizes basketball camps.
