    The game continues, only this time, the combination team has added Sendoh into their line up. Things change instantly when he comes in. The Fujima, Uozumi, Hanagata, and Sendoh combo, proves quite formidable against Shohoku's team. Though they manage to hang onto the lead. During halftime, students from Ryonan and Shoyo storm the building, as well as Mitsui's supporters and Akagi's long time friend and rival that's in the judo club. Fukuda also enters the game. Sakuragi continues making mistakes, but Shohoku keeps striking back.

    This episode was a little on the boring side. It didn't reveal a lot of that basketball stuff that's supposed to educate you about the sport. Only a little faction when Anzai said this is almost a mandatory game to win to prove themselves in the national level. Outside of that, just Fujima shooting three pointers, new spectactors to fill the role as the crowd, and Sakuragi messing up. I always liked how each game episodes would contain an interesting point of view for basketball itself, though this was just a back and forth contest. Though Sakuragi messing up was pretty amusing, and it was fresh humour rather than the already used Akagi looking like a gorilla, and playing with Anzai's triple chin. Fukuda literally taking the ball away from Sakuragi's hand in normal paced time was probably the most hilarious scene in the entire anime. It's one of those things that you'll continue to laugh at in the future when the scene randomly pops in your head.moreless
