Williams, who scored 19 points in the first half alone, converted a stellar 10-of-11 from the floor and 12-of-13 at the free-throw line for the Bulldogs (12-19, 6-10 SoCon) as they snapped a four-game slide to close out the regular season. Michael Bradley pitched in with 15 points and seven rebounds, Jordan Capps 11 points in 14 minutes off the bench and Connor Miller 10 points and eight boards before fouling out for the hosts.
