Xavier assistant basketball coach Ashley Howard is leaving after one season to take a job as an assistant at Villanova, Musketeers head coach Chris Mack told the Cincinnati Enquirer Thursday.
Wildcats head coach Jay Wright, through a spokesman, declined comment.
Villanova has an opening on its staff following the departure of Raphael Chillious, who returned to the bench at Washington after spending one season with the Wildcats.
Ryan Arcidiacono, a freshman point guard at Villanova, accepted an invitation to participate in the 2013 USA Basketball Men’s U19 National Team training camp. The camp, which also serves as a tryout, will be held on June 15-19 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Twelve players will be chosen to represent the United States in the FIBA U19 World Championships in the Czech Republic from June 27 to July 7.
Arcidiacono was the Big Five rookie of the year and named to the all-Big East rookie team this past season. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder averaged a team second-best 11.9 points per game to go with a team-best 3.5 assists.
