Story and Art by Takehiko Inoue
Hanamichi finally gets some game time as a substitute for the slightly injured captain Akagi and quickly goes about making a spectacle of himself. Not only does he manage to strip the ball from Ryonan's veteran center, but he also succeeds in making several key passes that result in some much-needed baskets. With Shohoku closing in on their opponents' lead, is Hanamichi on the verge of proving that he has what it takes to become the next captain?
