LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA freshman Jaylen Hands said he isn’t as explosive as he wants to be since he’s retuned from a foot injury.

Imagine the kind of dunks he can score on when he’s 100 percent. The assortment of high-flying dunks he threw down Sunday were quite impressive.

Hands scored a career-high 23 points off the bench, and Prince Ali added 20 points to lead UCLA to a 106-73 win over Detroit Mercy on Sunday.

The Bruins (7-1) have won four consecutive games. Detroit Mercy (4-4) has lost its last two.

“That was the most fun we had in a game this year, so that was a good thing,” Hands said. “It’s a confidence booster going into the next stretch of games we have before conference play.”

Hands scored 17 of his 23 points in the first half. The true freshman was seemingly unstoppable in transition. Twice in the first half, Hands turned his own steal into breakaway, high-flying dunks. One was a right-handed dunk and the other was of the two-handed variety. The freshman made his first four shots.

As for not getting that explosiveness he wants, Hands said: “That second (dunk) was pretty bad. I had to hang on the rim because I didn’t think I was going to make it. No more of that.”

You know it was a good day for UCLA when its high scorer was critical of his dunks. He’s not critical, however, about his place. He’s been coming off the bench but played 24 minutes Sunday, fourth most on the team.

“It’s all based on winning so I’ll do whatever I need to do to get a win for our team,” Hands said. “I think as the season goes along I’m getting more comfortable and more aware of my spots on the floor to be effective.”

UCLA was grooving in transition with all sorts of dunks from just about everyone, Kris Wilkes and Chris Smith included. On consecutive offensive plays, Wilkes scored on a highlight-reel two-handed reverse dunk and then a layup. Hands had a reverse dunk, too.

The Bruins made 11 3-pointers in the first half, shooting 44 percent from behind the arc.

UCLA’s defense forced the Titans into 12 turnovers, and they shot 33 percent from behind the arc.

“I thought that was maybe our most complete game,” UCLA coach Steve Alford said. “I was really pleased with the 40-minute effort. We were concerned with their 3-point shooting and how much they score the basketball. To put two halves together defensively like we did, it was very good for us. We were really efficient offensively. I think…
