The coach sets an "entrance exam" for the first-years, to shout their commitment to win the national championships from the school roof-tops during Monday morning assembly. A teacher interrupts before Kuroko's turn, but he later writes his in chalk in the courtyard. Kuroko explains his reason for joining the Seirin team was his disagreement with Teiko's motto of "winning is everything", and their no-team-play style. The coach sets up a practice match with Kaijou, a strong team, with one of the members of the Generation of Miracles, Ryota Kise. Kise visits Seirin, and Kagami challenges him to a one-one. Kise beats him, by using his specialty: "Perfect copy".
