In a perfect world, Villanova coach Jay Wright would have had the luxury of bringing freshman guard Ryan Arcidiacono along at a somewhat reasonable pace. (Clem Murray/Staff file photo)

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.

About this blog
Joe Juliano first visited the Palestra in 1970 after entering Temple University and became hooked for life on Big Five basketball. He'll always go with that name, figuring if the Big Ten can have 12 teams, why can't the Big Five have six?

Juliano joined the Inquirer in 1985 after 10 years at United Press International and has covered college sports for most of that time. His current beats are Villanova basketball, Penn State football, golf and the Penn Relays.
