After playing two years in a row in the competition during his run with Panathinaikos, Bentil joined Turkish side Bahcesehir Istanbul Koleji and played a handful of games in the FIBA Europe Cup before moving to Milano earlier this month.

In his Euroleague debut for Milano, the former Dallas Mavericks Combo Forward converted three of six two point shot attempts and scored one of four three point shot attempts.

Monaco ranks 14th in the 18 team standings while Milano ranks fourth with nine wins and five losses this season. Milano plays Brescia in the Serie A next.
