The Arkansas Razorbacks forward threw down an absolutely spectacular dunk in his squad's Sweet 16 matchup against Gonzaga on Thursday night. JD Notae managed to draw two defenders on a pass, leaving Williams free to dash toward the rim. He went up and drove home a one-handed slam that sent fans at Chase Center in San Francisco into huge cheers.
The 4-seeded Razorbacks are trying for an upset of the 1-seeded Bulldogs. Arkansas began their tournament run by barely holding off an upset bid against 13-seeded Vermont, before moving on to end 12-seeded New Mexico State's Cinderella story early in another close matchup. Gonzaga, on the other hand, easily took care of 16-seed Georgia State in the first round before surviving a close game against a scrappy 9-seed in Memphis.
While Gonzaga was down 32-29 going into the second half, it's familiar territory for the Bulldogs in this tournament. They were -8 in point differential in the first half in the first two rounds -- but they rallied for a collective +33 differential in the second halves. It remains to be seen whether they can keep up that second half surge against Arkansas.
