The former Dallas Mavericks player scored five of 10 two point shot attempts but surprisingly had no free throw attempts in the contest. He turned the ball over once in the game.
Bentil was one of four Milano players to score in double figures; the 6 foot 8inch player missed out on leading the entire game in scoring as Sassari’s Logan David scored 25 points.
