Ghana Forward Ben Bentil has been in action for Turkish side Bahcesehir Istanbul Koleji in the FIBA Europe Cup and has again delivered a top performance to underline his impressive early season form for his new club.

Bahcesehir beat Mornar Bar 75-68 in the regular season of the continental championship by emerging as the joint top scorer for Istanbul in the contest. (Click highlighted text to rewatch game)

  1. Hello Yaw Mintah

    Thank for this platform for us to follow our Ghana basketball players in the different countries. My mean guy is Ben Bentil. I see that you have not reported anything on Ben since October 13th. Is there something wrong?

    He is no longer listed on the roster of Bahcesehir Turkey in Eurobasket and has not played in the last 2 games the team has played. There is no record of him in the game statistics and the teams always lists who did not play (DNP). He is not on that list either! In the roster section his face has been blacked out too. Can you shed any light on why this is?

    I thought this might interest you since you are always featuring him and now you are not. What is going on with this young man? Thank you.
