Jason Williams (born November 17, 1983) is an American professional basketball player. A 1.98 m (6'6") forward who currently plays for Chorale Roanne Basket of the LNB Pro B. He formerly appeared at the Euroleague with the European powerhouse Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Williams played college basketball at the University of Texas at El Paso. He helped the Miners to three straight postseason appearances and 72 wins during his three-year career at UTEP. Finished his career with 1225 points, 614 rebounds and 300 assists. He was named to the 2nd Team All-Conference USA Team, the 2005 All-WAC Defense Team and the 2004 WAC All-Tournament Team.
On March 14, 2006, in the second-to-last game of his college career, Williams recorded the first triple-double in UTEP school history (also his first). He had 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in an NIT Tournament victory over Lipscomb.
On December 7, 2005, Williams was suspended indefinitely by UTEP for breaking the jaw of freshman teammate Stefon Jackson with a sucker punch during a particularly physical practice. Since Williams was the team's best player, his suspension ended up being only one game when Jackson, his victim, urged coach Doc Sadler to reinstate Williams for the good of the team.
