Call it a sigh-of-relief thread.

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Texas Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Exactly one year ago at the Erwin Center, the Texas Longhorns lost to the Radford Highlanders by three points in a game that helped derail the NCAA Tournament chances for head coach Shaka Smart’s team.

On Saturday, the Longhorns avoided an even worse loss against the McNeese State Cowboys, a team that entered the game ranked in the 300s in KenPom.com’s adjusted efficiency metric with a 73-71 victory keyed by some late three-point shooting and two clutch free throws by Courtney Ramey.

This is your sigh-of-relief thread.
