USA Basketball announced the 16 players who remain in contention for the U19 squad that will represent the United States in Prague. Among that group is Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono.
A year ago, guard Ryan Arcidiacono headed to a USA Basketball training camp in Colorado with rust to eliminate from his game. When he returns next week, he will do so with a year's worth of knowledge culled from the lessons of his freshman season at Villanova.
Ashley Howard, who began his coaching career as a student assistant at Drexel University in 2002-03, has been named an assistant coach at Villanova. He fills the void on the staff created by the departure of Raphael Chillious in May.
Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono is one of 24 athletes who will travel to Colorado Springs in June to compete for a spot on USA Basketball's roster that will take part in the FIBA U19 World Championship.
Men's basketball assistant coach Raphael Chillious has elected to depart Villanova and will return to the University of Washington, it was announced on May 16.
