Champagne Chalons-Reims and Ghana Forward Ben Bentil return to action in the French League Pro A with a tie against AS Monaco.

The tie takes place on Saturday November 4 with Reims playing away to the Principality team who have been in imperious form on the continent.

Despite sitting third in the standings at home, Monaco remains unbeaten in the Basketball Champions League where it features in Group A.

Playing against Reims will be Monaco’s second game this week after beating Dinamo Sissari 81-63 on Tuesday October 31 in the European competition.

Monaco are unbeaten in four games while Sissari remain winless in three games; Christopher Evans led the game with 18 points and Paul Lacombe fell a point short with 17.

However, Monaco have won five in seven games this season while Reims dropped its third in an 80-93 losing effort to ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne over the weekend on Saturday, October 28.

Bentil paced Reims in scoring by registering 17 points, four rebounds and an assist in the game; the former Providence College top performer has paced his team’s scoring chart in recent weeks after his move from the US.
