List: Ryan Arcidiacono 28th best player in college basketball

The list, released by The Big Lead ranked the top 50 players in college basketball. Surprisingly, rising Villanova sophomore Ryan Arcidiacono is high on the list, coming in at 28, only two spots behind Russ Smith, and ahead of players like Luke Hancock and James Michael McAdoo.

Here's what they had to say about him
28. Ryan Arcidiacono, G, Villanova.  Criminally underrated guard who was the Big East Rookie of the Year on the Big East All-Rookie team and Big 5 (Philly) Rookie of the Year. You put him on a team with talent, and he’s probably in the Top 20 on this list, maybe Top 15. The Wildcats return a lot of mediocre players, and Arch will once again have to carry the team.
I'm not sure about this at all, because first off, I'm not even sure that he's the best player on the team, and anyone who watched the team last season knew that Arcidiacono has some glaring flaws in his game. Perhaps those flaws will be mitigated by the fact that he won't have to play as much point guard this season.

These lists are generally constructed to get clicks, so we'll give them that because they're giving love to a Villanova player.
