Minnesota basketball reinstates center Reggie Lynch

-

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have reinstated junior center Reggie Lynch, the program announced on Thursday.

The news was first reported by the Star Tribune.

The 6-foot-10 Lynch was arrested on suspicion of criminal sexual conduct and subsequently suspended by the university. The university concluded its own investigation after authorities chose not to press charges and have cleared Lynch of any wrongdoing. He is not expected to face any further punishment.

Lynch, who sat out last season after transferring from Illinois State, is the Gophers’ projected starting center for 2016.

During his sophomore season at Illinois State, Lynch averaged 9.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocks.

With the off-court issues in the rear-view mirror, Lynch can now turn his attention towards the upcoming season where he will look to establish himself as an inside force in the Big Ten.
