Williams has had a long battle with vertigo, and some of UNC's players have seen this exact scary scenario play out before. But fortunately, he is OK.
It's going to take a near ideal performance, in my opinion, but the game of basketball is a weird sport and things don't go as they would appear on paper.
Williams was available for the postgame presser; he said he would have been OK to return and coach, but given how his team was playing, he didn't want to get in the way of their groove.
"I don't know how Coach does it", the guard said.
"I'm not going to croak on anybody". A similar situation occurred with Williams in 2016.

Freeman had suffered from health issues in the past, including lupus, meningitis and cervical cancer, which she had beaten. On Saturday, Janice told her husband Dion that she couldn't breathe, which prompted a 911 call, her family told TMZ .
This isn't the first case of vertigo - which causes a sense of whirling and a loss of balance - for the 68-year-old Williams.
"It definitely has a feel of some of those teams", Williams said this week.
"It's excruciating pain for a little while", he said. I started feeling a heck of a lot better.
"If we had lost, I would have gone out there with them", he added. "I'm really proud of our guys, but North Carolina...they are just very good".
"I told the boys about the movie "Hoosiers" and how Gene Hackman tries to intentionally get thrown out".
Carolina got another great performance out of White, with 28 points, six rebounds and five assists.
