Senegal international Yossou Ndoye also scored 11 points in the loss which is Betis 10th of the 2020-2021 Regular season in Spain. It was new Head Coach Joan Plaza’s first game in charge following his appointment.

28 year old Guard Ouattara added three rebounds and an assist to his tally in 24 minutes off the bench; a few days prior, he led France with 24 points after starting from the bench.
