Senior goaltender Sean Callahan of the Canisius College men's lacrosse team collected MAAC Defensive Player of the Week honors on Monday after anchoring the Canisius defense to a win over Marist during the weekend.

In the Griffs' MAAC Tournament bid-clinching victory against the Red Foxes, Callahan recorded 11 saves on 16 Marist shots on goal. His .688 save percentage is his highest mark of the 2012 campaign, while his 11 saves matches a season high. The senior was at his best with the game on the line, allowing one goal in a 41-minute stretch after Marist tied the contest at three, including a 29:06 scoreless streak as Canisius built a 6-3 advantage.

Callahan earned the weekly accolade for the second time in his career. A three-year starter for the Griffs, the Orchard Park native has accumulated 281 career saves and a 10.31 career goals against average - the fourth-best mark in the program' history.

The senior's performance helped the Griffs earn the three seed for the 2012 MAAC Tournament this weekend. Canisius opens the championship against No. 2 Detroit in the semifinals. Game time on Friday is set for 4:30 p.m. on the campus of Marist
