2012 NIT Selection Show Time, TV Coverage: Savannah State Already In

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

No Georgia teams will make it into the 2012 NCAA Tournament, unless 40 schools decide to fold their basketball programs within the next hour or so. Crazier things have happened. World War I, for instance. World War I makes the least sense of anything. You should read up on it!

However, the Peach State won't be shut out of national tournament basketball, as the Savannah St. Tigers, regular season MEAC champs, have already locked down a spot in the NIT. If they'd won the MEAC tournament, they'd be at the big dance, but at least Georgia has a representative in the middle dance, yes?

Other teams already in, via: Akron, Bucknell, Drexel, Iona, Middle Tennessee, Nevada, Oral Roberts, Stony Brook, UT-Arlington, and Valparaiso.

There's also the CBI tournament, for NIT snubs, and the CIT below that. It may go on forever.

Time: 9 p.m. Eastern, two hours after the NCAA Selection Show ends.

TV information: You can find the NIT Selection show on ESPNU.
