Bentil scored six points and added a steal in 12:50 minutes off the bench in the win on the back of converting both two point shot attempts and scoring a pair of free throw shot attempts.
“Only victories, only titles, we did one part of the job. Now we are waiting for the Euroleague playoffs. This crowd is incredible, one of the best I’ve played in front of” Bentil said according to MN Press.
The title adds to Bentil’s trophy haul of two Greek league titles, a Greek Cup and a Serie A and Italian Cup title since he turned pro in 2016.
Crvena has back to back Euroleague games scheduled against German sides Alba Berlin at 18:00 GMT on Friday, February 24 and Bayern Munich on Thursday, March 2 at 18:00 GMT respectively.
