Ben Bentil ended a run of underwhelming performances in his second stint at Fort Wayne Mad Ants with an emphatic display in the latest round of game in the NBA Development League.
The Ghanaian Forward paced the games with 31 points in just 29 minutes of action as he led the Mad Ants to a 132-125 win over Erie BayHawks.
Prior to his breakout performance, the former Providence College standout’s best mark was 12 points.
He registered an assist, a steal and five rebounds to his game leading point tally.
His tally bumped significantly up with his three point shot finally begin to fall as he converted four of seven attempts from the spot.
His field goal conversion was at par as he shot 11-19 and converted all attempts from the free throw line.
The 6 foot 9inch player will be hoping for a repeat performance when Fort Wayne plays Toronto Raptors D League affiliate Raptors 905 on February 7.
Bentil is Ghana’s first indigene to be drafted into the NBA and has already played in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA).
