By shooting 10-for-11 against Dayton Wednesday, Saint Joseph's sophomore forward Ronald Roberts Jr. raised his shooting percentage for the season to 61.6% (93-for-151).
Seven more made field goals will make him eligible to join the list (below) of the 19 times a City 6 player has shot 60 percent or better from the floor (below).
Notable: Villanova's 1981-82 team is the only City 6 team to have two players shoot over 60% ... A pair of players on different teams reached the plateau in three different seasons (1987-88, 2000-01, 2001-02) ... Temple has never had a player shoot 60%. Their record is held by Tim Perry (58.5% in 1987-88) ... Penn's Matt White was the first to reach 60% in a season (1978-79) ... Villanova's Bradley is the only City 6 player to lead the national in FG percentage. West Chester's Joe Senser did it twice (69.9% in 1976-77, 68.5% the next season) when that school was playing Division I.
