If he gets a fourth, he will be forced to sit on the bench and both teams are attuned to Mitsui's play. He also feels that he shouldn't be on the basketball team because so many women have rejected his offer to date. Akagi who puts down a gorilla dunk shows off his complete revival. Yohei and his friends assume Hanamichi will explode and quickly react to avoid the worst situation. While the players from the mixed team and even his own team look on in disbelief, Hanamichi carries on making his Training Camp Shot. Hanamichi is very elated for this Haruko's suggestion.
There is an uproar in the stands as fans begin to realize that he might be a genius. However, in the finals arena, Moroboshi is out of the game due to a hard check by a first year. They start working in two seaside shacks, but on payday they are faced with an unexpected expense. As Hikoichi starts to look for other players, Akagi has no choice but to agree. Sendo also mentally supported Uozumi, and Uozumi decides to support the team from the bench. Ryonan's bench is also fired up by their momentum.
Meanwhile, Mitsui picks up his third foul. With only a month left before the Nationals, Shohoku's practice gets heated. Their marks have been poor, and if they don't pass their upcoming tests, they'll be forbidden to play! When Akagi and his team go to Shizuoka for a combined training camp with Jousei High School, Hanamichi is told to stay behind for a special training with Anzai. Each episode is packed with interesting drama, and that is what has allowed the show to be a success. He is aware that he loves basketball just as much as he loves Haruko.
However, Uozumi with three fouls is in the same situation. He doesn't have any previous experience playing sports, and so he wonders if he will get accepted. Akagi decides to take in his teammates and have a study camp at his house. When he meets Haruko Akagi, he instantly falls in-love with her because she doesn't seem to be scared of him. Ryonan takes a time out to praise Fukuda so that he will play up to his ability. But the coach had high hopes for him.
And what Ryonan fears actually happens. Although Shohoku has the lead, they are in panic. Hanamichi doesn't want to belong to the team at first because he does not think he will be accepted. Hanamichi makes sure Yohei and friends don't come and disturb him to go on a date with Haruko. Anzai is betting on Hanamichi's ability to improve incredibly and wants him to master the jump shot in a mere ten days. You will like the show if you decide watch. And the entire arena is beginning to expect Ryonan's come-from-behind victory.
Ryonan who lost Uozumi gives Shohoku a three point lead. The show is written Takehiko Inoue. Hisashi Mitsui and Royota Miyagi both decide to rejoin the basketball team, and this allows the team to become competitive again. On the other hand, Hanamichi is unable to show off the results of his training, and his teammates look at him with disdain. Hanamichi who took out Uozumi shows off his ability. As the students keenly watch on, he dominates the rebounds and even fuels the offense with some momentum. You will have to watch the show to see what happens week to week.
However, while they are scooping goldfish for some little kids, and having fun, Haruko is approached by some thugs and their good time is ruined. Even Rukawa starts out a bit jittery, but once his engine is revved up, they instantly shrink the score gap. It is a shocking scene to see Moroboshi's Aiwa Academy down by 20 points to Meihou Tech. For that reason, Rukawa challenges Mitsui to a one-on-one after practice. Then, Shoyo's Fujima, Hanagata, and Hasegawa who coincidently met up with Hikoichi come by to cheer them on. Especially Rukawa who plays his hardest even in scrimmage games and grabs for the ball with intensity.
However, the game ends in disagreement and Hanamichi steps in to challenge Rukawa. He has a bad influence on people because he has decided to join a gang, and be its leader. This is because he has a new goal of becoming the number one high school player in Japan. However, Hanamichi who was concerned with his jump shot focuses on his rebounding. But it is Hanamichi's devious side that suggests that they hold a practice game. They are trying to get Akagi to come to Fukazawa Athletic University and to get their recommendation approved, they need Akagi to finish in the top 8 at the Nationals. Hanamichi is fired up at getting Fukuda and there is no end to Shohoku's energy.
Meanwhile, Fukazawa Athletic University's Coach Karasawa and player Sugiyama are visiting the Akagi household. Sometimes what you think will happen does not actually happen. The basketball team is able to join once the misfits get together, and the Shohoku basketball team is able to become really good in Japan. He makes a shot under-the-rim that he never made before. He has been rejected by women over 50 times. Even though he is quick to get a temper and can act extremely immature, Sakuragi makes the decision to join the team and proves to be a natural athlete. Haruko wants to prove that she should be interested in Sakuragi.
