NOTING THE GRIFFS

  • Canisius enters the weekend with an 8-13 overall record and 6-4 record in the MAAC, sitting in a tie for fifth place in the conference standings after a four-set win at Niagara last weekend.
  • Saturday's match will be part of the Dig Pink Campaign. Canisius is helping raise awareness for breast cancer for the third season in conjunction with the Side-Out Foundation.
  • Canisius defeated Rider in four sets on Sept. 22, while the Griffs defeated the Peacocks in three sets on Sept. 21.
  • Junior Emily Litwin was named the MAAC Libero of the Week on Tuesday, receiving the award for the second time this season. Litwin had 23 digs in the four-set win at Niagara and also served out the first set, capped by a service ace.
