THRICE AS NICE FOR CARLY QUINN
• Senior Carly Quinn has made a good case for MAAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2012.
• On Monday, Quinn was named the MAAC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season in only five weeks since the Griffs began play. She is the only multiple winner of the award in 2012.
• This past weekend, Quinn led Canisius with seven points, netting two goals and matching a career high with five assists in a 17-9 MAAC win over Manhattan.
QUINN RANKS AMONG THE BEST
• Senior Carly Quinn has been hard to stop in each game this season and now ranks among the best not only in the MAAC, but also in the country.
• Quinn leads Canisius with 37 points in 2012, registering 16 goals and a team-best 21 assists.
• The senior currently leads the MAAC with 4.11 points per game and 2.33 assists per game. She also ranks 14th nationally in assists per game and 25th in points per game.
A FAMILY CONNECTION
• Carly isn't the only Quinn excelling with the Griffs this season. Tori Quinn joined her sister on the MAAC honor roll by earning the conference's Rookie of the Week.
• Tori did a little bit of everything to help Canisius to the win over Manhattan. She set a career high with four points on two goals and two assists, while adding two draw controls, two caused turnovers and two ground balls.
• During her rookie campaign, Quinn has totaled 12 points, eight goals, four assists, 14 draw controls, 11 caused turnovers and 11 ground balls. She is a two-time Rookie of the Week.
A KEEPER IN GOAL
• Needing to replace four-year starter and one of the most decorated players in school history - Allison Daley - is no easy task and the Griffs struggled early in the season.
• However, the Griffs have seemingly found an answer in freshman netminder Kayla Scully.
• Since making the move midway through the contest against Ohio State, Scully has posted a 9.06 goals against average and .551 save percentage in two-plus games.
• In earning the starting nod in each of the last two contests, Scully owns a 2-0 record to go along with a 7.75 goals against average and .600 save percentage.
• In the first six-plus games of the season, Scully and junior goaltender Gina Molfetta had combined to post a 13.28 goals against average and .261 save percentage.
• Overall, Scully ranks second in the MAAC with a .451 save percentage and third with a 10.77 goals against average.
