Basketballghana.com can report Ghana’s Ben Bentil is in line to feature in Panathinaikos latest game in the 2020-2021 EuroLeague Basketball Tournament.
Panathinaikos plays Russian side CSKA Moscow tonight at 19:30 GMT at the Olympic Indoor Hall in Athens, Greece; the fixture is Panathinaikos fifth game of the top tier European competition while Moscow is set to suit up for its seventh game.
The Greek side ranks 11th with two wins in four games while Moscow has three wins in six games and ranks ninth in the 18 team standings.
A win is sure to propel Panathinaikos into the top half of the standings; Bentil’s team game against Zenit last week was postponed due to a reported positive case of COVID 19.
Coming off the bench in all four games in the top tier competition, the Sekondi native has averaged 3.5 points and two rebounds in 8:35 minutes of game play.
This is Bentil’s second season competing in the tournament; he is the first Ghana born player to play in the NBA.
