Overview Edit

The match between Nekoma and Fukurōdani ended with the latter winning 2-0. Fukurōdani has now secured a spot in the Spring High. The two teams shake hands and Yaku mentions that they now have one more chance to earn a spot for nationals. Lev is depressed because he felt like he did not make a big impact in their last match. Lev mentions that Nekoma is a team founded upon teamwork and he cannot be the one who's the weak link on the team. Kuroo tries to cheer him up by saying that teams are complicated. But the moment when you feel yourself clicking with the rest of the team will put you in a state of euphoria. Nekoma heads out onto the court to face their next opponent, Nohebi Academy. The winner will be the host representatives at nationals. The two captains shake hands and group up with their team and the match begins.
