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.

The 6 foot 8 inch Bentil stuffed the stat sheet by registering 17 points, five rebounds, an assist, two steals and a block in 25:50 minutes as a starter.

Teammate Oguz Savas also scored 17 points and added 11 rebounds for a double double outing; Bentil was one of five players to score in double figures for Koleji.
