After the Christmas and All Star Break, the French Pro A Basketball League second round commences with games lined up tonight.

The stand out tie this evening will be the top of the table clash between leaders Monaco and second placed Limoges.

Champagne Chalons-Reims has a stern test in Round 16 as it prepares to take on Le Mans with the latter side in third place on the standings.

Ghana Forward Ben Bentil will be in action for Reims as the Northern French side looks to build on a positive end to the first round.

In the final couple of rounds, Reims inked two wins in as many games with Bentil starring in both victories over Pau-Lacq-Ort and Gravelines.

His double double in the win over Pau and 16 points in Reims victory over Gravelines pushed his average to 13 points per game this season.

This puts him ahead of Iceland Shooting Guard Martin Hermannsson as the team’s leading scorer; Hermannsson has averaged 12 points per game.

Reims play seventh ranked Bourg a week from today on January 20.
