Nagaland and Mizoram are the only two states to have both their men's and women's teams reach the last-four stage but, interestingly, five out of the remaining six states also got at least one team into the semis, with only Tripura failing to make it through. 

In the women's category, Nagaland defeated Arunachal Pradesh 40-32 in the early morning fixture before hosts Meghalaya registered a strong 68-23 result against Assam. Mizoram were then involved in a very close contest with Manipur but edged their opponents by 60 points to 55 before Sikkim ran riot against Tripura 87-12. 

The men's quarterfinals saw Mizoram defeat Sikkim 89-60 before Manipur knocked out Meghalaya 82-69. Assam's men then beat Arunachal by 50 points, 94-44, but the highest-scoring match was saved right for the end when Nagaland got the better of Tripura by 109 points to 85.
