—Katsumi Takahashi, to Shinjo Towa Academy
Katsumi Takahashi (高橋克己, Takahashi Katsumi) is a third year point guard and captain who plays for Shinjo Towa Academy.
Takahashi is about 191 cm. He has black hair and eyes with the same corresponding color. He wears white sneakers which has black lining from the midsole till heel tab.
Takahashi and Kojima were previously on the basketball team of their junior high school and are presumably long time friends. Kojima and Takashi wanted to join the Shinjo Towa basketball team but because the previous players had all graduated, they became the only two players on the team.
One day, Takahashi had a group of middle schoolers train in their gym. He trained them in the hopes of creating prospects for their team when they became high schoolers. Kojima and Takahashi became the faces of the team and, being the most experienced, they led the team through inspiration and good morale. The two of them are so influential, that their team can keep cheering so loud even if they are behind.
Takahashi is the 'ace' of Shinjo Towa Academy. An efficient scorer, he is good at dribbling, shooting and does a great job at facilitating scoring opportunities for his teammates. He can also perform dunks.
