Yoshinori Susa (諏佐 佳典 Susa Yoshinori) was a third-year small forward and vice-captain of the Tōō Academy basketball team. After the Winter Cup, he retired from the team with Imayoshi and the other third-years.


Susa is very tall and muscular. He has spiky, dark brown hair and a large nose. During games, he wears the Tōō Academy jersey with the number 7.


In contrast to the rest of his team, Susa has no significant personality quirks. He is calm and serious, although he can be light-hearted at times (as seen when he joins Imayoshi in teasing Wakamatsu about how loud he is).

He is very considerate towards his teammates, asking Sakurai if he was alright during the Tōō vs Seirin game and offering to help him defend Hyuga. He later offers to help Aomine up when the latter falls down.

After Tōō loses to Seirin, Sakurai observes that both Susa and Imayoshi show signs of having cried, albeit not openly, noting that they must have been disappointed at losing in the first round, as it was their last year on the team.

Susa appears to be good friends with Imayoshi, as Imayoshi asks for his opinion during one of their games. The two are also seen studying together, during which Imayoshi points out that Susa seems distracted, and Susa admits that he is thinking about how Seirin is doing in the Winter Cup. Later, Susa is seen watching Seirin's games and visiting the Tōō basketball team. When Imayoshi asks him about his college entrance exams, Susa admits he thinks he may have failed them, to which Imayoshi replies that he could show him some backdoor methods.


Interhigh preliminaries

He appears at their game in the Interhigh against Seirin High. He is seen guarding Kagami and screening him out when he tried his self-alley-oop.[1] He is later seen again in the second half of the match, when Kuroko re-enters the court. As Susa was about to throw in to Imayoshi, Kuroko appears between them and steals the ball.[2]

Pre-Winter Cup

He joined Tōō Academy in the practice match against Josei High and was also present when Tōō used the same hot spring as Seirin.[3]

Susa in the match against Seirin

Susa appears at the Winter Cup before Tōō's game against Seirin. He lines up with the other regulars at the start of the match.[4]

When Seirin tied with Tōō in the beginning of the match, Imayoshi passes to Susa because of the height difference between him and his defense, Kuroko. Susa scores the basket.[5]

Later on, Susa tries to stop Kuroko but the latter uses his Vanishing Drive to break in. After Seirin makes the basket, Susa tells Imayoshi that Kuroko's technique is exactly as Momoi explained.


As the Winter Cup finals are about to commence, Susa arrives at the gym with his former teammates.[6] When Nebuya is announced through the speakers, he asks Imayoshi about the current status of the Uncrowned Kings.[7]
