All Reggie Lynch needed was one half to set the University of Minnesota's single-season blocks record Saturday against Penn State.

Lynch, a 6-foot-10 junior from Edina, recorded six blocks in the first half to get to 90 this season, which broke Randy Breuer's record of 89 set back in 1981-82. He entered the game as the Big Ten's top shot blocker and fourth in the nation (3.1).

It was the seventh game this season where Lynch had five blocks or more, which included a career-high nine blocks in a Nov. 18 win against St. John's.

Lynch sat out last season after transferring from Illinois State. In two seasons with the Redbirds, he finished No. 2 on the school's all-time blocks list with 189.
