    The Saluki men's basketball team will play in the 2012 DirecTV Charleston Classic, tournament organizers announced Friday.

    The three-game tournament will be held Thursday, Friday and Sunday, Nov. 15, 16 and 18, at TD Arena in Charleston, S.C.

    Seven teams are confirmed to play (Baylor, Boston College, Charleston, Colorado, Dayton, St. John's and Southern Illinois) with one more squad to be determined.

    The 2012 Charleston Classic will feature 12 games over the three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through a bracket-tournament format. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship matchup on Sunday, Nov. 20.

    Georgetown won the 2010 Charleston Classic, with Miami winning in 2009 and Clemson taking the title in the inaugural tournament in 2008.

    The Charleston Classic is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT), a subsidiary of ESPN.
