ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - During the 2010-11 campaign, it seemed like every game was a block party for the Knights. In Donnie Jones' first season at UCF, the Knights blocked shots at a record pace.

With the college basketball season complete, the NCAA's final statistics are now updated, and UCF concluded the year eighth nationally in blocks per game at 5.8.

UCF established a new school single-season record with 190 blocks. The previous best came in 2004-05 when the squad registered 143 swats.

Both Tom Herzog and Keith Clanton finished the year in the top 70 nationally in blocks per contest. Herzog averaged 2.0 blocks, good enough for 46th in the country. Clanton ranked 68th with 1.8 blocks an outing.

Clanton totaled 60 blocks, the second-highest single-season total in program history. Herzog had 59, which tied for third on the list.

The Knights led Conference USA in blocks. Herzog ranked second in swats per game, followed by Clanton in third. A.J. Tyler (22 blocks, 0.8 per game) was 15th in the conference
