As the game against Sannoh heads into the second half, Shohoku struggles to keep up. Sannoh's coach Domoto isn't about to let Shohoku think they can stage an upset and lets loose his team's explosive offense. With Shohoku on the ropes and Sakuragi upset by a substitution, the players start feeling completely outmatched, and even Akagi begins having doubts. But Coach Anzai hasn't given up yet, and he begins priming Sakuragi on the sidelines for a comeback!
