Villanova's Arcidiacono

By Amy McGinnis

The Villanova Wildcats are currently 3-1, thanks in large part to the team’s leader in scoring and average minutes per game.

Ryan Arcidiacono is a 6’3″ guard from Langhorne, Pennsylvania, who is currently averaging 16.3 points and 33.8 minutes per game.  We’re only four games into the season, but I’m impressed by his numbers, and here’s why: Arcidiacono is an eighteen-year-old freshman.  During Villanova’s November 11th victory over Marshall, Arcidiacono scored 25 points.  Last week, he was named Big East Rookie of the Year.

If this is how Arcidiacono delivers as a rookie, I expect big things from this kid over the next four years and beyond.  Villanova hosts Columbia (2-1) at the Pavilion tonight at 7:05.
