Full NIT Tournament 2012 Bracket: Savannah State Draws Tennessee

The 2012 National Invitational Tournament bracket is upon us, featuring an appearance by the Savannah St. Tigers. Even though they're a bottom-seeded team in the NIT, they're still the highest-ranking Georgia team in any national tournament, with their automatic appearance coming by virtue of their regular season MEAC championship. Savannah State gets the No. 1 seed Tennessee Volunteers Tuesday night.

The title round of the 75th NIT is set as usual for New York City, this time from March 27 to March 29. Round 1 begins March 13.
