Kōki Furihata (降旗 光樹 Furihata Kōki) is a first-year at Seirin High. He plays the point guard position.
Furihata is one of the smaller Seirin players and has nearly the same height as Kuroko. He has light brown, half long hair. He plays with the number 12.
Furihata has a very quiet and nervous personality. He was getting nervous while just standing near Generation of Miracles. He got even more scared when Akashi arrived and later on asked Furihata to leave.
Furihata was first seen when he joined Seirin. He is pictured by someone else, with a slightly different style of hair, but would later be known as Furihata. When the first years had to play against the second years, he was very demotivated and thought that they would lose no matter what.
Winter CupEditFurihata was along with the team when they arrived at the venue of the Winter Cup. When Kuroko told them that he had to go and see other members of Generation of Miracles, Riko asked him to accompany Kuroko. He was shocked to see all of the Generation members together. He was surprised to see that the captain of the Generation was not really tall, only near about his own height. He was even more scared when Akashi asked him to leave and further when Akashi attacked Kagami.
During the following matches, Furihata is seen on the bench, cheering for his team and giving commentary on the match.
Semi-finalsEditFurihata finally makes his debut in the middle of the 1st quarter in the Winter Cup semi-finals against Kaijō High. Being at a disadvantage, Seirin was rushing to score. To slow down the pace and to cool their heads, Riko puts Furihata in the match, switching with Izuki for point guard. Furihata is terrified as he enters the court, because of the national-level pressure. When Kasamatsu sees him, he calls him a petrified first-year brat. Kagami and Kuroko try to reassure him, to no effect. He receives the ball from Hyūga, but fumbles it and loses it to Kasamatsu. Kuroko takes it back and passes it to Furihata and sets him at ease by telling him that he fell on his own first match. Frightened, but slightly set at ease, Furihata brings the ball upcourt. He passes the ball to Kagami, but when he sees that Kobori and Hayakawa are ready for defense, as well as Kise, Furihata asks the ball back. Furihata regroups and sends the ball to Kuroko, who passes to Kiyoshi, redirected through to Hyūga, who makes the three. Due to Furihata's foundation, Seirin was able to score their first basket in a considerable time. Next, Furihata pressures Kasamatsu in defense, but gets passed. His shot goes out because of Furihata's efforts and later during offense, Furihata moves the ball around and supports his teammates. Kagami's rebound leads to a fast break, in which Furihata scores a lay-up, his first basket ever.
He is later overwhelmed by Kasamatsu yet again and Riko decides that this is as far as they can use Furihata. Riko states that he accomplished their goal and calls for a time-out. She subs Izuki back in for Furihata and congratulates him on his job well done. Furihata seems relieved.
Furihata has no overwhelmingly obvious skill above his average basketball skill, but displays great caution and level-headedness on the court and thus can control the pace of the game extremely well. As commented on by Kasamatsu, Furihata is the kind of point guard that relies on his teammates and only functions to support them.
