Seihō High vs Kitawada High was the fifth round in the Interhigh preliminaries. Both Seirin High and Shūtoku High scouted this match to investigate this year's Seihō. The match itself was an overwhelming victory for Seihō. Midorima commented that their defense is especially tough. Kagami also noticed that their movements are weird, which is later revealed to be their special martial arts training. Takao and Kuroko both notice Tsugawa's outstanding pressure defense. The match eventually ends with 71 – 12.
