Chris Arcidiacono used the UnderArmour Association's opening session in New York City to help boost his stock in 2018.

The UnderArmour Association’s first session in New York City was an opportunity for several prospects to boost their stock and one such player has a familiar last name.

Chris Arcidiacono, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound combo guard from Langhorne (Pa.) Neshaminy is the brother of former Villanova standout Ryan Arcidiacono.

After missing much of his sophomore season and summer with injuries, the younger Arcidiacono showed the ability to create for others and himself with his jumper in New York.

“I facilitate well,” Chris said. “I get my teammates involved. I try to get them easy layups and shots.

“This is my first time on the circuit; kids are a lot faster so I need to stay in front of them better and take care of the ball.”

Offers have already come in from Eastern Kentucky and Rider, with several others monitoring.

Given Arcidiacono’s 3.5 GPA, he looks to get plenty of attention from high academic schools.

“Academics is huge with my family; it’s a big part of what we do,” he said.

Ryan Arcidiacono has given his younger brother plenty of advice on how to approach the game.

“He says to be the hardest playing kid on the floor and good things will happen,” Chris said.
