Xavier’s Jalen Reynolds picked up two personal fouls in the first 40 seconds of the first half and was scoreless heading into halftime of the Musketeers’ 90-83 victory over St. John’s on Wednesday night in Cincinnati.
The 6-foot-10 forward took out his frustrations on the rim — and St. John’s defender Felix Balamou — with a vicious two-handed tomahawk dunk, the first of three Reynolds dunks featured in the video above.

Balamou was called for a technical foul for holding Reynolds leg as he landed. Myles Davis sunk the ensuing free throws to extend Xavier’s lead to 49-46.
Reynolds finished with nine points and four rebounds, but was 1 of 8 from the free-throw line.
