Winter Cup finals
Rakuzan High (洛山高校 Rakuzan Kōkō) is a prestigious school in Kyoto where the captain of the Generation of Miracles, Seijūrō Akashi, and three of the Uncrowned Kings play. They are also mentioned as the defending champion of the Winter Cup for the past five years and the school who won most tournaments, according to Hyūga. They are also the winners of this year's Interhigh. Because of this, they are automatically placed for the Winter Cup. They have just won the Winter Cup semi-finals against Shūtoku High and have qualified for the finals.
Their victory against Tōō Academy in the Interhigh finals, gained them the reputation that they are a team of monsters. Although notably, both Aomine and Akashi were absent from that match. During the Winter Cup finals match, all of the Rakuzan starters have entered the Zone due to Akashi's influence.
