20 schools will compete in this year’s tournament with 12 schools competing in the Boys Division and eight schools in the Girls Division.
Schools in the Boys Division have been divvied into four groups with each group containing three teams. Basketballghana.com can confirm the top two teams from each group qualify to the quarterfinal stage.
Despite the reduced number of teams in this year’s competition, the number of qualification slots remains same. In recent years, the division has had 16 competing teams.
2018 winners Osu-PRESEC won its maiden title via this route after beating Mfantsipim School 25-22 in the final game.
In the Girls Division, two groups hold all eight competing schools with four in each group. The top two teams in each group qualify to the semifinals.
