Forget dirty fouls, running up the score and talking about someone’s momma.

“I got the rebound and I saw (Wilkes) running,” Hands said after the game, via the Daily Bruin. “And I remember I had a lot of space, so I was like, ‘I have to do something crazy.’ ”
Yeah, that play certainly qualified as “crazy.”
