The senior middle hitter had a season-high 20 kills with a .571 attack percentage, five blocks and three service aces in the four-set win over Manhattan. Good then posted 13 kills on 18 attack attempts with six blocks and three service aces in the sweep of Saint Peter's. The Rochester, N.Y. native had a .667 attack percentage in the sweep, the best by any player in the conference this season.
In conference play, Good ranks second in the MAAC with a .357 attack percentage and is first in the league with a 1.10 blocks per set average. On the season, Good leads Canisius in kills per set (2.43) and attack percentage (.317) and ranks third in the league at 0.91 blocks per set.
Canisius sits at 16-10 overall and 13-3 in the MAAC standings, tied for first place with Fairfield University.
