Brice Kofane came to the United States and the Miller School in 2007. At the time he could barely speak English, and didn't play very well on the offensive side of the basketball court despite standing 6'8".

That's all in the past.

Brice worked diligently to improve on his academics and basketball skills at Miller. He worked his way to the honor roll with a 3.6 grade point average, and improved his skills on the court to be a valuable asset for Mavericks varsity basketball team.

His skills on the court have drawn heavy interest from several division-1 programs, but Brice has his eyes set on Harvard University and hopes to attend the Ivy League school to play basketball next fall.
