Agree with the comments on Roberts free throws percentage . But , many , many Coaches use the timeouts , foul shots to substitute better defensive players into the game on basically a possession by possession basis . Roberts could have been removed after any dead ball stoppage and a better foul shooter or offensive player inserted . Just having him collect splinters on the Bench doesn’t seem to me to be a good strategy in a tight game where a defensive stop on Xaviers 8-0 run might have been interrupted . Sure , when we have the ball in a close game , you might not want him to be the designated player to be fouled. But , as I said , in/out substitutions can prevent that . Just a thought .

Great point. The jonnies are absolutely atrocious at hitting cutters and dishing off penetration. We miss multiple easy baskets every game cause our guys dont look up.

The late game defensive collapse was just as much a factor . It was a tired , small group of players down the stretch that were in the Court . Why Roberts wasn’t on the Court on the Defensive end is a legit question . He played 11 minutes and was fresh . And , he has shot blocking skills . We have worn down dramatically in the last 5 minutes of more than a few games . Late game strategy often dictates the outcome of games . Having fresh and the right players on the Court is a important Coaching responsibility . Opponent Coaches in the BE are proven winners , exception Leitao. They know how to manage a game .

They went on an 8-0 "run" precisely because we finished the game shooting 1-13 so it was the offense not the defense that allowed the run.

This particular group of guys really struggle passing the ball. Hopefully next year we will be better because we miss a bevy of open cutters and roll guys. Roberts is always open on the roll and we just don’t have guys that can hit him in scoring position. He’s also not a great finisher.

Sitting Roberts at the end of games because of his woeful foul shooting certainly seems to be sound strategy. But Coach Anderson probably realizes after the four big east collapses SJU would have been better off with Roberts on the foul line than his other players missing easy shots , forcing up terrible shots and in general basically not being able to genarate any offense in the end of games.
