Rajasthan boys continued their undefeated run in the tournament even in the finals against the other undefeated team in the tournament and the defending champions, Madhya Pradesh. Rajasthan played like champions from the first game of the tournament defeating all their opponents with big margins. One of the key factors in Rajasthan's victory was their defence which helped them gain a good lead in the finals as well. Forward Lokendra Singh dropped 21 points for Rajasthan providing the team a powerful start whereas guard Prashant Chauhan led all scorers with 28 points. Madhya Pradesh's Bhagat Singh was leading their team to a comeback in the third quarter but got fouled out eventually in the beginning of the last quarter.
