Seirin announced as this year's champions

Seirin is awarded this year's Winter Cup championship. The whole team celebrates their victory. They are overjoyed that they have finally achieved their long awaited goal of being the best in Japan. Meanwhile, their opponents, are shocked by their defeat. Akashi, having finally been defeated, realizes what it feels like to lose and describes it as inexplicable pain in the chest, not knowing if he will be able to maintain his composure while lining up. However, with this pain, Akashi comes to appreciate being able to play basketball and being able to meet Kuroko. Akashi approaches Kuroko and extends his arm for a handshake as he congratulates Kuroko on his team's victory. However, he tells him that next time Rakuzan will be the winners. Smiling happily from his victory and Akashi's return, Kuroko accepts and shakes Akashi's hand, telling him they will play again in the future, as many times as he likes.

A few weeks later, Kagami arrives late to the gym to meet his classmates already training. Kagami notes his upperclassmen are missing and asks Furihata and the rest where they went. Furihata reminds him of the farewell party which he missed, and Kiyoshi has gone to America for treatment. Furihata and the rest then remember their training and wonder if there will be none today. Hyuuga suddenly appears behind Kawahara and Fukuda while smacking them on their heads, telling them there will be practice. The upperclassmen return and remind the four that they cannot be left behind by other teams. The team decides they will be resetting their goal now that they have achieved their initial goal of winning the Winter Cup. They are ready to start training when Tsuchida notices Kuroko is missing. Hyuuga sends Kagami to search for him in the locker room.

Kagami is frightened as usual, and Kuroko apologizes for being late. Kuroko tells Kagami he had to meet Momoi in order to receive a photo. Kagami asks him on what he did for his birthday before remembering to go back to practice. Both Kuroko and Kagami run off to the gym while Kuroko's locker slightly opens, revealing a photo of Kuroko , Momoi, and his teammates from Teiko playing street ball. The photo shows the regained and renewed friendship of the group as they are playing basketball together again.
