Ghana Forward Ben Bentil celebrated his second title win since turning professional in 2016 following his Panathinaikos side’s 91-79 win over Promitheas in the Greek Basketball Cup Final.
After bagging the 2019-2020 Greek League title under the heavy influence of COVID, Panathinaikos wrapped up its first title of the 2021-2022 campaign with the win.
Coming into the game hot on the back of registering a blistering 19 points in 15 minutes off the bench in the semifinal win over Lavrio, Bentil cooled off in the final.
The versatile Forward played just 8:58 minutes off the bench and registered three points and three rebounds and attempted just one field goal shot. He scored all three points from the free throw line.
Bentil is in the final months of the two year contract he signed with Panathinaikos after moving from fellow Greek side Peristeri before the 2019-2020 season.
The Sekondi native is the first Ghana born player to play in the NBA and could win his second Greek League title later this month. Panathinaikos made the playoffs as the number one seed and plays Ionikos on Wednesday, May 12.
