"who were held to 13 points combined — more than double below their collective average."

Still gnawing on this phrase - more than double below? Double below would mean what?

Does that mean 13 points is less than 1/3 of their combined average (each of the double being 13, so their total avg would be more than 39) or less than 1/2 (double just implying 1/2, so their total avg would be more than 26) or?

Sorry, not trying to be facetious here, I truly do not grasp the use of this phrase.
