And you thought Tennessee's season couldn't get any more controversial, huh?
The shot came after Tobias Harris missed a potential dagger of his own from the left corner. Williams snatched an offensive rebound away from UGA's Chris Barnes, then flipped it back up quickly, sending his teammates into a frenzy.
But should a foul have been called after Williams appeared to go over Barnes' back for the board? (Maybe.) Was it clean? (Probably not.) Was it a jump ball? (That sounds about right.)
Williams was noncommittal when asked afterwards.
"Call it how you want to," he told reporters, according to ESPN. "It might have been a foul, maybe not. I'm glad they didn't call a foul on that."
"I'm Kobe [Bryant] mixed with a little Dirk [Nowitzki]," Williams said of the game-winner, according to a tweet from radio personality Wes Rucker.
Other than maybe providing college basketball's quote of the year, the burly 6-foot-10 senior also helped the Vols stay relevant for another day.
They're 12-6 overall, 2-2 in the SEC and are staying afloat while coach Bruce Pearl serves his eight-game suspension to start league play. He'll be making a guest appearance of sorts on Saturday when Tennessee travels to face No. 8 UConn, but then head back into hiding until a Feb. 8 trip to Kentucky.
Georgia dropped to 2-2 in the SEC, but at least has a couple of winnable home games on the horizon and can make up for the lost opportunity, hosting Mississippi State on Saturday and Florida next Tuesday.
