At the end of last season the Seirin team found themselves watching the final rounds of the Inter High championships. Fortunately, their dreams of making it to the National Tournament weren't completely dashed.
The win against Kirisaki Daichi is enough to get Seirin through to the Winter Cup but, when they see their draw they're less than thrilled to realize that they have to face off against Aomine and Touou in the very first round.
Kirisaki Daichi is captained by one of the Uncrowned Kings, Makoto Hanamiya. Hanamiya is also the one responsible for injuring Kiyoshi last year.
Unlike their first meeting, Shutoku attacks Seirin with all their strength from the get go.
Seirin's next big game in the Winter Cup brings them up against Kagami's brother, Himuro and Murasakibara, the giant center of the Generation of Miracles.
