COLLEGE STATION, Texas, March 28. FLORIDA's Shaune Fraser broke 1:41 barrier, and lowered his NCAA record in the 200-yard fly to head into the diving break.

Fraser touched out Georgia's Mark Dylla, 1:40.75 to 1:40.85, in one of the closest finishes in the event in NCAA history. Notably, Logan Madson rounded out the top three with a 1:41.70. Rainer Kendrick of Texas holds that record, however, with a 1:54.97 to 1:55.00, triumph over Jayme Cramer of Stanford in 2004.

Fraser's effort eclipsed his NCAA record of 1:41.17 set during prelims, while Dylla joined Fraser and Michael Phelps (1:39.70) as the only swimmers under 1:41 in the history of the event.

The win gave Florida its fourth win in the event's history. Craig Beardsley (1981, 1982) and Anthony Nesty (1990) claimed the other crowns for the Gators.

Auburn continued its march to its eighth men's title with 473 points, while Texas sat second with 436 points. Stanford moved into contention for second with 426.5 points, while California (318) and Florida (300) made up the top five.
