Story

EXTRA GAME

The Jabberwocks arrives at the Tokyo airport with his team to be greeted by journalists and photographers who came to greet them into their country. When Silver teases one of the female interviewers, Gold steps in and answers the interviewer's question instead by telling her that they are looking forward to the game and that everyone should come to watch them play. Gold, Silver and the rest then meet with Kagetora who is their official guide. The group then leaves to sightsee Japan and go into a cabaret club, which Kagetora remembers being left in a horrible condition after their visit.

On the day of the match, both of the teams are announced onto the court, first Team Strky who are the Japanese team. Finally, Team Jabberwock is announced onto the court with a loud cheer from the audience. The match begins with Jabberwock having the possession of the ball. The team mocks Team Strky with their mocking gameplay which both Aomine and Kagami note to be making their opponents seem worthless, making even the audience not being able to enjoy the match even if they wanted to. The match comes to an end with a dunk from Silver with the final score being 86 - 6. After the match, an interviewer approaches Gold to ask him about his thoughts on the match. Gold replies by saying that it almost made him puke and that all Japanese people are monkeys who are unable to play basketball. He finishes by saying that everyone should give up on basketball and kill themselves. Angered by this, Kagetora proposes a revenge match in a weeks time. Silver was hesitant to accept at first but is interrupted by his captain, Gold, who accepts the challenge.

He's noted for his relentless defense and interior scoring and has also been show to posses an outside shot.

Streetball Skills

Zack's mastery over unorthodox ball handling is nothing short of elite. While many of these maneuvers seem to be primarily centred around entertaining an audience, Zack along with the rest of Team Jaberwock have taken it to such a high level that these skills find real utility within a match as evidenced by the humiliation of Team Strky, a university team composed of core players from the best high school teams across Japan who recently graduated.

Pressure Defense

Zack's signature skill is his pressure defense. He's frequently seen using this ability to completely shut down opposing players by stopping any attempt to drive past him and walling them of entirely. Zack is skilled enough to defend against both Kagami and Aomine by himself, who were considered Vorpal Swords double aces.
