Ghana’s basketball export Ben Bentil leads team to victory in Greece

Versatile Ghanaian Forward Ben Bentil started for Panathinaikos in the Greek team’s latest outing in the domestic league and helped the defending league champs clinch its third win in a row.

Bentil started at Power Forward and played 21 minutes in Panathinaikos’ 90-67 win over Kolossos in Round 5 of the 2020-2021 Greek League Regular Season.

 

The former BETABET Bilbao Basket player registered 12 points, three rebounds and a steal in the big win for the Greek giants who lost two games in the EuroLeague prior.

The 25-year-old converted four of six free throws, two of four three-point attempts and one of three attempts from two-point range in the game.

He was one of three Panathinaikos players to score in double figures with Nemanja Nedovic leading the way with 19 points with 12 points coming from three-point range.

Panathinaikos is third in the standings with three wins in as many games with AEK leading the standings with four wins in four games.
