Georgetown Vs. Temple: Hoyas Fall Short In Final Seconds, Fall 68-65

It's official: the Georgetown Hoyas will not be undefeated this season. Despite rallying in the second half, the Hoyas fell on the road in Temple 68-65, coming up short down the stretch.

The Hoyas had a chance to take the lead with little time left, and had an excellent opportunity. However, Hollis Thompson could not finish around the basket, and the Owls got the ball back with 2.3 seconds left. After two free throws, the Hoyas had one final chance, but Austin Freeman's desperation half-court buzzer beater was way off the mark.

Temple got the win largely based on the fantastic play of Ramone Moore. The junior guard had 30 points on the game, hitting 12-18 from the field. Seventeen of those points came in the first half, and for most of the nights, he was their offense. 

Georgetown countered with four players in double figures, but top guns Austin Freeman (6-17) and Chris Wright (3-9) struggled from the field. As a team, the Hoyas shot 42 percent from the field in the loss.

This isn't a bad loss, seeing as Temple is a very tough out at home, so Georgetown shouldn't get too upset. However, it is still a loss to an unranked team, so it stings.
