That's always a tough choice. There are two risks to fouling intentionally in that situation:
1. They make the first FT, intentionally miss the 2nd and grab the rebound for a tip/shot to tie the game (or win it with a pass outside for a three). This has happened in college games.
2. The defender makes it obvious he's about to give an intentional foul and the player with the ball starts to shoot just as he's being hit - giving him three FT's. This has also happened in college games.
