Villanova and Syracuse have agreed to a home-and-home men's basketball series over the next two seasons.

Syracuse will play Villanova in the Carrier Dome on Dec. 28, and the Wildcats will host the Orange at the Wells Fargo Center in 2014 at a date to be determined.

Tryout for Arcidiacono. Ryan Arcidiacono, a freshman point guard at Villanova, accepted an invitation to participate in the 2013 USA Basketball men's under-19 National Team training camp. The camp 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 under-19 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 Big East Conference's all-rookie team last 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.
