Winning isn't everything in the game of basketball, but who wants to come in second? It takes dedication and discipline to be the best, and the Shohoku High hoops team wants to be just that. They have one last year to make their captain's dream of reaching the finals come true—will they do it?
It’s do or die for the Shohoku High School Basketball Team! If they want a spot in the Nationals, they need to win this game.
