Texas vs. Georgetown final score: Longhorns crushed by Hoyas, 64-41

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Longhorns dropped to 5-3 on the season after a frustrating 23-point loss to Georgetown on Tuesday night.

Despite picking up wins in each of their last three games, the Texas Longhorns came up short by a significant margin on Tuesday night against the Georgetown Hoyas, 64-41.

Playing without point guard Myck Kabongo for the eighth straight game, the Longhorns struggled to find consistency within their offense against Georgetown's length and athleticism on the perimeter. In addition to scoring just 17 first-half points, Texas shot a woeful 29.2% as a team and turned the ball over 21 times on the night.

Aside from 12 points from Sheldon McClellan and 11 from Cameron Ridley, the Longhorns had virtually nothing going offensively against a stout Georgetown defense that tallied 13 steals and six blocks. Texas did manage to hold the Hoyas to a meager 4-for-18 from three-point range, but still left the court on Tuesday with just 14 made field goals and a disastrous 52.4% mark from the free-throw line.

Now with losses to Chaminade, Southern Cal and Georgetown already after roughly 25% of the season, the Longhorns will hardly have time to pick up the pieces with a game versus a talented UCLA team scheduled for this Saturday.
