Bentil started the game and produced an efficient performance by converting five of eight two point shot attempts and scored all five free throw attempts. He scored two of a trio of three point shots in the winning outing.

Two of his converted field goal shots came via dunks including a one handed slam and a two handed jam on a fast break. He assisted a highlight dunk late in the game.


Jordan Bone of Besiktas tied Bentil’s scoring output but the latter had more support from his teammates en route to secure the 11 point win.

Bahcesehir ranks third in the 16 team league standings heading to its matchup against Pinar Karsiyaka on Sunday, October 3.
