It looks like Jay Williams still has some game.
During the College GameDay broadcast at University of Virginia on Saturday, the analyst left it all out on the court, nailing a half-court shot on his first attempt.
To make it even more interesting, he went up against Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long.
“This is how you become a meme and it’s not happening,” Long said as he reluctantly walked toward the middle of the court. “The only way I shoot this shot is if I get a $100,000.”
“If you make it, I’ll give you a $100,000.”
With the pressure mounting, Long was up first.
After taking a few dribbles, Long let it fly. It looked close from the initial launch, but was unable to find any part of the hoop.
Williams was up next and he didn’t waste any time.
Without skipping a beat, he effortlessly threw up his shot and walked away, knowing it was money from the start.
“That’s good, count it,” the former Duke Blue Devil said as he walked toward the crowd with his fist in the air.
He called it as the ball not only went in, but was nothing but net.
He wasn’t the only one to pull the clutch out in front of the packed house either.

After Williams made it look easy, a fan was given the chance at making the long-range shot — and the $18,000 that came with.
Reeling in his inner-Jay, the fan nails the shot, wins the cash and celebrates with Williams and the rest of the crew on the court.
Williams 1, Virginia fan 1, Long 0.
