Fujita, the ace of Saijo High, comments that this is an exciting match, and he is glad that he and his teammates came to the tournament venue to see it. Sora praises Kaname for his excellent assist in passing the ball to Kenji. Kaname, in return, also praises Sora for his passing skills. An angry Kenji tells Sora that he has been ignoring his requests to pass the ball to him. Momoharu, on witnessing his freshmen better than expected basketball skills, comments that their first-year trio members are indeed skilled.

Kaname tries to score, and he is unsuccessful. Kazushi grabs the loose ball and quickly scores the layup. Shinjo Towa Academy widens their lead to five points.

Sora asks Kaname for his wellbeing. A tired Kaname replies that he is fine. Upon hearing his teammate's response, Sora comments that the burden on being the team’s center is heavy because one has to cover the low post area. Sora further states that whenever the rhythm of attack changes, it places a heavy burden on the team’s center, and both teams have been focusing on attaining low post scores for a while. Sora from the half-court line quickly passes the ball to Kenji. Shinjo Towa doesn’t notice the quick pass. Kenji retrieves it and scores. Everyone on the court praises Sora for his efficient passing skills, and a depressed Chiaki leaves the court.
