Before this season, it seemed like only KenPom was talking about him. Now, despite getting screwed out of the PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year award, it seems like everyone knows about him, and it's only going to get better. "Animal Style" put up some ridiculous defensive numbers. He led the team both in block percentage (91st nationally) and steal percentage (475th nationally). He had the highest eFG% on the team, largely thanks to his put-back dunks and his free throw rate which was second best on the team behind Spencer Dinwiddie. This also lead to him being number two on the team in offensive efficiency. All of those numbers are impressive, but it's rebounding where Roberson truly shines. He was 90th in the nation in offensive rebounding percentage with 12.7% -- which is actually down a touch from the 15.1% he posted his freshman year when no one knew about him -- but his defensive rebounding numbers were spectacular. He pulled down almost 30% of the available defensive rebounds while he was on the court. The only player in the nation who had a better number was potential National Player of the Year Thomas Robinson from the University of Kansas.
2012-13: He's only going to get better. His rebounding and defense is already top notch, and while the numbers support his offensive game, he could still use some improvement there. He shot 38% from behind the arc, but a lot of those were uncontested because he hasn't quite earned the respect of defensive players yet. But he definitely looked a lot more comfortable out there and I see no reason that he won't be better next season from out deep. The percentage may not be better, but if he can hit 1-2 a game at a 35% clip, it will make the Buffs offense that much more dangerous. If he can just slightly improve his jumper next season, it will be likely that Roberson will be spending the 2013-14 season in the NBA and not in Boulder.
