After surviving four training sessions that included 26 of the top 19-and-under players to be named as one of 16 finalists for the 2013 USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Championship team, Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono did not make the final 12-man roster.

The team, coached by Florida's Billy Donovan, was announced on Monday.

"Getting down to 12 is the real hard part because in a lot of respects we easy could have kept 14-15," Donovan said in a statement.

As a freshman, Arcidiacono averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 assists and 2.1 rebounds with the Wildcats.
