Small Forward/Power Forward Ben Bentil turned pro in 2016 after leaving Providence College and declaring for the NBA Draft. For two seasons, the 6 foot 8 inch player competed for several teams but none competed in the postseason.

However, in his third season as a pro and first with Peristeri GS in the Greece A1 Basketball League, the 24 year old impressed despite his side's elimination in the playoff semifinals by Panathinaikos. Peristeri will miss out on competing in the League Finals.

Bentil's side lost 75-82 in Game 3 of the best of five game series getting swept in the process after losing the first two games in the series. In 26 minutes, Bentil had 21 points, 11 rebounds, an assist and a steal off the bench.

In six games in his first playoffs as a professional basketball player, Bentil averaged 15 points and 8.5 rebounds nearing a double double in the process. The 2016 Boston Celtics draftee scored in double digits in all but Game 2 against Panathinaikos where he attempted just four shots scoring four points.

After impressing in his first outing in Greece, Bentil is likely to compete in the NBA Summer League after playing for San Antonio Spurs and Celtics in previous years.

Ghana loses two straight games at African Beach Games - 5 days ago
Ghana's National 3x3 Basketball Male Team has lost two straight games at the ongoing African Beach Games in Cape Verde pushing the team closer to a quick elimination from the maiden continental games. Ghana lost 17-21 to Mali in its opening game before falling completely apart against host nation Cape Verde who run away with a 21-7 win. That puts Ghana in a tough spot to progress from the Pool since it needs a big win over much fancied Ivory Coast in the last game and favourable results...   [read more]
