After earning its first win of the 2013 campaign last Saturday in its MAAC opener, the Canisius College men’s lacrosse team continues conference play this weekend against Marist. The Griffs and the Red Foxes are set to meet on Saturday at 7 p.m.

GRAVINO WITH A ROOKIE SHINE
• Freshman Vince Gravino has made quite the impact in a short amount of time for Canisius.
• Just six games into his career, Gravino ranks second on the Griffs with 18 points this season, netting a team-best 12 goals to go along with six assists.
• The current MAAC Rookie of the Week set career highs with seven points, four goals and three assists in his most recent game against VMI – a 10-7 Canisius win. The seven points are the most by a Griff freshman since Adam Jones also had seven points in 2008.
• Gravino now ranks fourth among Division I freshmen with 2.00 goals per game and sixth with 3.00 points per game.

RAUTENSTRAUCH BECOMES OFFENSIVE FORCE
• One player that is taking advantage of the new rules that puts an emphasis on two-way midfielders is senior Joe Rautenstrauch.
• Primarily a defensive midfielder during his first three seasons at Canisius, Rautenstrauch now ranks third on the team with seven goals in six games as a senior.
• Rautenstrauch went scoreless during the first 26 games of his career prior to the season.
• In addition to his seven goals this season, Rautenstrauch ranks second on the team with 19 ground balls in 2013.

MAN-UP WAKES UP
• After a slow start to the season, the Griffs are starting to score with the man advantage in 2013.
• Canisius has converted 34.4 percent of its man-up chances in its last two games after scoring on only 15.3 percent of its chances in the first four games.
• The Griffs were ranked 61st of 63 teams after the first four games before the run. Canisius now ranks 43rd with a rate of 26.9 percent.

CANISIUS - MARIST HISTORY
• In a series that dates back to the Griffs’ inaugural season in 1990, Marist holds a slim 10-9 advantage against Canisius.
• The home team has won 15-of-19 games in the series. Canisius is 7-2 all-time against Marist at the Demske Sports Complex.
• Last season, the Griffs won only their second game at Marist with a 7-5 win. Canisius clinched a bid to the MAAC Championship with the victory in the season finale, eventually winning the title a week later.
• Mike Moran led the Griffs in the win last season, taking 14-of-16 faceoffs.

ABOUT THE RED FOXES
• Marist is 5-1 on the season and 1-0 in MAAC play.
• The Red Foxes won their first five games of the season before falling at nationally-ranked Duke on Tuesday, 19-11.
• Connor Rice leads the Red Foxes with 22 points on eight goals and 14 assists. Jack Doherty is second with 21 points, scoring a team-best 16 goals.
• Dave Scarcello has started all six games for Marist, posting a 10.22 goals against average and .488 save percentage.
• Matt Dugan ranks first in the MAAC by winning 56.8 percent of his faceoffs in 2013 (63-of-111).
