Synopsis

Sora's skill and enthusiasm remind Momoharu of what it means to be passionate about basketball but will Momoharu keep his promise to get serious about the game again.

Summary

Sora earns his place on the team, winning the best out of ten. Madoka congratulates him on this at lunch. The other members of the boys' team still won't let Sora practice on the court. They force him to clean the locker room if he wants to play basketball.

He completes cleaning the locker room and heads to practice while making as many baskets as possible. Madoka sees him and gets curious as she ends up counting the number of baskets he makes.

While the other team members of the Kuzuryu High boys' basketball team hangs out at a convenience store when other students arrive from Shinmaruko High, a confrontation occurs between the two sides. Momoharu and his teammates beat Maru High's members under a bridge. Chiaki warns them not to mess with them; otherwise, they will face the consequences the next time.

Momoharu makes it back to school and notices Sora practicing. Madoka tells him, Sora has made over 1000 baskets. At the same time, Momoharu reminisces his time when he was a kid. He could never make a basket, which caused him to lose interest in the sport.
