Basketballghana.com can report Olimpia Milano and Ghana Forward Ben Bentil will have to wait a while before lifting the 2022 Serie A Basketball Title.
This comes after Milano lost 78-84 to Virtus Bologna in Game 5 of the Finals Series; Milano still leads the series 3-2 five games into the best of seven games series. Game 6 is on Saturday, June 18 at 18:30 GMT.
Bentil registered a rebound in seven minutes as he battled foul trouble; Bentil registered four fouls and recorded a turnover in a drab night for the former Dallas Mavericks player who joined the team earlier this season.
Nicolo Melli and Sergio Rodriguez led Milano with 20 points and 18 points in the loss but lead scorer in the playoffs Shavon Shields could only muster three points, three rebounds and an assist.
Milano lost four straight games in last season’s final against Bologna but needs a win in one of possibly two games to win the title. The team won the Italian Cup earlier this season.
