Two of the four seniors who helped make basketball history at Spanish River are now planning to play at the next level.

Forward Evan Kupferberg has committed to play for New York University, while guard Dante School committed to Lynn. Kupferberg was a Post All-Area first-team selection, and Scholl made the second team. They helped Spanish River win the Class 8A Region 4 championship and compete in the school’s first state tournament. River lost 55-36 in the semifinals to eventual state champ Hialeah Gardens.

Kupferberg averaged 15.8 points, 14.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists as a senior. Scholl tallied 14.3 points and 6.1 assists a game. NYU is a Division III program, and Lynn is Division II. The spring signing period begins Wednesday, April 11.
