Ugly hoops season draws to a close

ATLANTA (AP) - Once the nets are down and the confetti stops flying, it will be safe to open your eyes again, basketball fans.

Yes, 2012-13 has been one ugly season.

With physical play on the rise, scoring and shooting have dropped to levels not seen in decades.

A few examples of some of this year's historically bad numbers include:

- Teams averaging 67.49 points, lowest since 1951-52, decades before either the 3-point line or the shot clock were introduced to college basketball.

- Field goal percentage falling to 43.3 percent, lowest since 1964-65.

- Shooting from the 3-point line plummeting to just over 34 percent, the worst it's been since 1996-97.

- And this has been the lowest-scoring NCAA tournament since the 3-point line was put in, at 131.2 points a game.

The season ends Monday night with the national title game between Louisville and Michigan.
