Billy Lange | Associate Head Coach | Men’s Basketball | Villanova

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

We first and foremost look for student-athletes that will fit here at Villanova. We want our players to embrace the mission of Villanova, and embrace the culture of our basketball program. We want highly skilled student athletes that also are young men of high character.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled? 

We have had many successful student athletes here at Villanova both on and off the court. Those that have been most successful fully bought into our university and program culture. Ryan Arcidiacono is a great example of a current student athlete that continually exceeds our expectations. As a child of two Villanova alums, he appreciates and values the opportunity to receive a Villanova education. On the court, he is consistently one of our hardest working student athletes and sets the example to all around him of what it truly means to be a Villanova Basketball player.
