OOSTING NAMED MAAC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
• Senior Megan Oosting saved some of her best play for the nation's top competition.
• Oosting earned MAAC Offensive Player of the Week for her efforts against Cornell and Ohio State. She recorded two goals and four draw controls against the Big Red, who entered the national rankings this week. Oosting then matched a career high with five goals against No. 12 Ohio State and added eight draw controls - one shy of her own school record.
• The weekly honor marked the second time that Oosting has earned MAAC Offensive Player of the Week accolades. She has also been the league's Defensive Player of the Week on three occasions.
SIMPLY THE BEST
• Not only did Megan Oosting excel against strong competition, but the Griffs as a team this season has played arguably their best lacrosse against nationally-ranked foes.
• Canisius has squared off with two nationally-ranked teams in No. 7 Vanderbilt and No. 12 Ohio State this season. The Griffs lost narrow contests to both teams by a total of five goals.
• The Griffs are now 0-13 all-time against ranked foes but played their two closest games. Prior to the 2012 campaign, the smallest margin of defeat for Canisius was six in a 14-8 setback to No. 9 Albany last season.
LENDING A HELPING HAND
• One of the secrets behind Carly Quinn's success at Canisius is her ability to find the open player.
• During her career, Quinn has accumulated 61 career assists, which ranks third in the school's record book.
• The senior is currently tied for the team lead with 22 points on 10 goals and 12 assists this season. Her 1.71 assists per game lead all players in the MAAC.
