For a self-proclaimed genius such as Sakuragi, executing a dazzling slam dunk is no problem at all, but what about some other basketball moves that require a bit more finesse? Not to mention exhibiting a firm understanding of basketball fundamentals, which he most certainly doesn't have. With the help of Haruka (and some goading from captain Akagi), Sakuragi attempts to put his pride in check and learn how to pull off a basic lay-up. In theory it should be easy... but sometimes the simplest shots are the toughest to master.
Story and art by Takehiko Inoue.
