After stumbling a few times in the early parts of the season, Ghana and Champagne Chalons-Reims Forward Ben Bentil looks settled.
Following his much publicized transfer to the French Pro A side after suiting up for NBA side San Antonio Spurs, the Sekondi-born sweet shooting Forward has been a consistent supplier of points as his resume said.
The 6 foot 8 inch player has paced his team’[s scoring charts consistently in recent outings with the recent showing being a 19 point performance in an 80-93 loss to ASVEL Lyon.
Prior to that, he led all scorers against Limoges by draining 17 points en route to clinching his side’s fourth win of the season in seven games.
Reims play AS Monaco on Saturday with the home side in third place in the standings while Reims lie tenth in the 18 team division.
The Northern French side could exploit Monaco’s heavy schedule to clinch a win after the Principality side was involved in a Basketball Champions League tie on Tuesday.
Bentil has featured for Dallas Mavericks in the NBA and Guanghui Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China.
