Basketballghana.com can confirm Panathinaikos will compete in the EuroLeague tonight against French side ASVEL Lyon in its 10th outing in the 2020-2021 season.
The game tips off tonight at 19:45 GMT in France with Ghana’s Ben Bentil in line to continue his fine form in recent games including getting his first start in the top European competition this season.
In an 83-76 win over Bayern Munich in the previous round, Bentil started at Power Forward for Panathinaikos and delivered nine points, two rebounds and two assists in 18:38 minutes.
That performance came after scoring 12 points to help Panathinaikos beat Kolossos in the Greek League where the team ranks fifth.
In nine EuroLeague games, Panathinaikos has three wins and ranks 14 on the 18 team standings with tonight’s opponent Lyon in 17th place with two wins in eight games.
Bentil was drafted 51st overall by Boston Celtics in 2016 into the NBA after starring at Providence College before spending a majority of his professional career in Europe.
