However, against Kasiyaka, Bentil’s efficiency on the offensive side dropped off and teammate Baygul Mohammed emerged as the top scorer with 15 points in the contest.
Colson Bonzie Jnr. led all players with 41 points leading Kasiyaka to its second win in as many games; Bahcesehir has a win and a loss in two games played this season.
Bentil and Koleji Istanbul plays Fenerbache next on Saturday, October 9.
