Scoring significantly down in NCAA basketball this season

Purdue is awaiting its game against Santa Clara on Monday. So I researched the web for some basketball related stories, and I found one that is really interesting. College basketball this year has been tough to watch at times — the scoring has hit all-time lows and a lot of the games have put viewers to sleep with scores sometimes in the 40s.

But why?

I found this USA Today article that tries to find the reason for the low scoring this year, and I thought it was really well done. The article talks about fundamentals, physicality and other reasons as the cause for the down year.
