Give Up (あきらめろ, Akiramero) is the thirty-second episode and the seventh episode of the 2nd season of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.
Due to the large number of matches, tournament regulations prohibit overtime, hence the match ends with a tie at 104 apiece. On the other side, Kirisaki Daiichi defeated Senshinkhan 108-70, but it is said that the former won with unfair measures. Outside the locker room, Kagami overheard a fiery conversation between Hyuga and Kiyoshi. Later that night he asks Hyuga about it. Apparently this year is Kiyoshi's final chance of playing high school basketball, despite only being in his 2nd year. Flashback to 1 year ago, we see the story of the formation of Seirin's basketball club, Hyuga's real feelings about high school basketball, and Kiyoshi's determination to set up a basketball club.
