However, with two rounds left to play in the season, Bilbao is ranked just a spot above bottom ranked Real Betis. Bilbao has eight wins and 24 losses.
The team is in a race to win as many games and hope for teams immediately above, Zaragoza and Joventut, to lose games in the final stretch of the season.
Should Bilbao fail to move up the standings, the team will be relegated to the lower tier and Ghana Forward Ben Bentil will be forced to go down with the team.
While his team struggles, Bentil has struggled since moving to Spain from French side Champagne Chalons-Reims.
The former Dallas Mavericks man has struggled to replicate his fine form in France and in early days in Spain as he registered no points in the team’s 74-78 loss to Baskonia.
Bentil is the first Ghana born player to play in the NBA.
