Harrell motioned for Hancock to throw the ball, despite the three defenders between the guard and the basket.
"He wants to dunk everything," Hancock said with a smile. "And that's a good thing for your big man."
Harrell did a lot of dunking on Tuesday.
In an 87-48 victory over Hartford, the 6-foot-8 sophomore finished with 20 points and nine rebounds and was one short of the school record for dunks in a game with six.
"I didn't know that," Harrell said of the record, which is seven by Pervis Ellison. "But now that I know that, I am going to try and get it."
It's not like Harrell hasn't been trying before.
Harrell is doing a better job on the backboards with 24 rebounds in the past two games and said his mentality on offense is easy: dunk every time down the floor.
"Pretty much," Harrell said with a smile. "Every time I go up, I am looking for one. I told (his teammates) just throw it up. If they put it anywhere around the rim, I am going to go get it. I will make it my turnover if I can get it.
"I always tell myself if you finish above the rim then you have a better chance for the shot to go in. It's better than a jump shot."
Harrell was 9 of 12 from the field and now has 12 dunks in four games this season for the Cardinals.
"That's why we call him Mega-Trez," point guard Chris Jones said. "I think I gave him two of them tonight. He just says throw it up there and he'll get it."
Harrell is second on the team with a 14-point average and leads the Cardinals at 9.3 rebounds a game. He's 23 of 33 (69.7 percent) from the field.
