After gruelling zonal rounds, the nation’s twenty best colleges from five different zones (four each from North, South, East, West and Central) are battling for the incomparable honour of being named the no. 1 college hoops team in the country at the annual All India Inter-Zonal University Championship that is underway at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in the holy city of Varanasi.

The tournament, which began on 3rd February will conclude on 8th February. Matches have been held simultaneously in the newly refurbished Maharaja Dr Vibhutinarain Singh indoor stadium at BHU as well as on the adjacent outdoor court. This is the first edition where regional rounds have been played across five zones, central zone being the new entrant.

As of today (6th February 2014), the league stages have just concluded and the quarterfinals are set to begin. Hosts Banaras Hindu University and last year’s third placed team University of Delhi have been knocked out after the league stages. Defending champions Punjab University Chandigarh and last year’s runners up University of Madras have a perfect 4-0 record going into the knockout stages.
