The Dagger - NCAAB

From tip dunks, to tomahawks, to spinning two-handers, Arizona's Derrick Williams had enough highlight-worthy slams in an 85-74 victory over UCLA to fill half of SportsCenter's top 10 by himself.

Which one was best? Clearly this first-half alley-oop.

A slightly off-target pass from teammate Kevin Parrom forced Williams to reach behind his head to keep the ball from sailing out of bounds. The result was a particularly spectacular one-handed alley-oop, one that rivals a similarly flashy alley-oop he had against Idaho State earlier this season.

Williams provided most of the highlights in a turnover-ridden victory over UCLA that solidified Arizona's grip on second place in the Pac-10. The Wildcats extended a five-point halftime lead to as many as 16 and kept the advantage in double figures most of the rest of the game, surviving a 24-point onslaught from UCLA's Reeves Nelson by holding the rest of the Bruins in check.
