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.

Here's the complete 2012 NIT bracket. For individual game TV times and schedules, head to ESPN.com. Every higher-seeded team but Dayton will host its opening round game -- the Flyers lose their home arena to the NCAA Tournament's play-in thing.
