Bahcesehir Istabul Koleji has lost for the second time in consecutive fashion after falling 78-79 to Fenerbache in the Turkish Basketball top flight.
Ghana’s Ben Bentil was a lead performer for Bahcesehir once again as he scored 14 points in the loss; he was one of three players to score double figures for Istanbul.
The Small Forward-Power Forward added five rebounds and five assists in 28 minutes as he started his third league game in a row since joining the Turkish side in the past offseason.
Unlike the opening league game win over Besiktas, Bentil was inefficient scoring the ball as he converted four of nine shot attempts from two point range and one of four three point attempts. He scored three of six free throw attempts. (Click highlighted text to view story)
