Not to be confused with Chapter 48 of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.

"We won't lose. We can't lose. If I'm expelled, all my struggles to stay in this school will have been for nothing."
Tsukushi Makino

Chapter 48 (第48話 () ) of Boys Over Flowers by Yoko Kamio was first published on April 5, 1994 in the manga magazine, Margaret. It was followed by chapter forty-nine the same month.[1] The chapter was later included in the series' eighth volume.

The basketball match determining Tsukushi Makino's fate kicks off. Obviously outmatched, Tsukasa Domyoji's team quickly scores several points. Rui Hanazawa makes a last ditch effort to win by distracting Tsukasa with Tsukushi.

Plot

Tsubaki Domyoji begins the basketball match by setting the ground rules. To herself, Tsukushi Makino thinks "We won't lose. We can't lose." On the sidelines, a student complains about the obvious outcome of the match, another rejoices in being "free" of Tsukushi, while Sakurako Sanjo and Yuriko Asai are leading a cheer squad for Tsukasa Domyoji. Tsukushi determines "They won't get me without a fight." Glancing at Tsukasa, she remembers the previous night. She resolves to "empty [her] head of all thought."

Rui Hanazawa explains his strategy to Tsukushi and Kazuya Aoike. Tsubaki then performs a coin toss which decides that Tsukasa's team will start. Rui yells out orders to Tsukushi and Kazuya. The F4 quickly score their first point. Next, Rui tells Tsukushi to catch the ball when he throws it. Akira Mimasaka makes a show of blocking it at the last second and then tosses it to Tsukasa, who scores. The F4 are up eights points with only three minutes left. Tsukasa says "We win", but Rui refuses to give up.

Tsukushi and Kazuya rejoice when Rui scores their first point. Looking at her, Tsukasa becomes upset and takes it out on Akira and Sojiro Nishikado. Rui gets an idea and asks Tsukushi "Would you do anything to win?" He then kisses her on the forehead. His plan works as Tsukasa begins making mistakes, allowing Rui to stack up points. Sojiro and Akira try to calm down Tsukasa to no avail. With two seconds left, Rui tells Tsukushi what to do. When she asks "What if I miss?", he replies "Then I'll stop time for you."
