The Savannah State Tigers basketball team represents Savannah State University and competes in the NCAA Division I as a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference since 2010. The Tigers play their home games in Tiger Arena on the university's Savannah, Georgia campus. Since joining Division I, the Tigers have never qualified for the NCAA Tournament.
They are currently coached by Horace Broadnax who is in his 13th season as head coach of the Tigers.
On April 17, 2017, the school announced that it would return to Division II due to financial issues associated with competing in Division I. On December 7, 2017, the school announced it would rejoin Division II's Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference following the 2018–19 academic year, pending NCAA approval.
