Olimpia bagged an 89-59 win over Reggiana in Game 3 to progress to the semifinals of the playoffs in the best of five games series via a 3-0 series win.

Bentil registered 16 points, five rebounds and an assist in 21 minutes in the 30 point win for Milano; Olimpia recorded a 91-82 win in Game One and a 91-65 win in Game Two. (Click highlighted text to watch game highlights)

The 27 year old former Dallas Mavericks player converted five of eight two point shots but less efficient shooting from three point range and the charity stripe.

He scored just two of six three point shot attempts and missed both free throw shot attempts; better efficiency would have improved his scoring tally.
