The Savannah State Tigers basketball team represents Savannah State University and competes in NCAA Division II as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference since July 2019. The Tigers play their home games in Tiger Arena on the university's Savannah, Georgia campus.
They are currently coached by Horace Broadnax who is in his 13th season as head coach of the Tigers.
They competed in NCAA Division I in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference from 2010–2019, but never qualified for the NCAA Division I Tournament. 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 (SIAC) following the 2018–19 academic year, pending NCAA approval.
