@Basketball #Portugal @FPB @Illiabum -85-71 @SLBenfica Final

Benfica derrotado em casa do Illiabum

Benfica added a fourth defeat in the national basketball championship on Sunday when they lost sight of the Illiabum, sixth in the league, by 85-71. With this draw, the incarnates leave FC Porto alone in front of the table with 29 points, 1 more than a trio composed by the eagles, V. Guimarães and Oliveirense.

This afternoon, in Ílhavo, the SL Benfica only once were in charge of the scoreboard (just in the first minute), having passed the rest of the match in the rear, eventually losing by a clear 14 points difference. An unexpected triumph on the part of the Northerners, much thanks to the performance of Rashad Bishop, who with 23 points and 6 rebounds was the man of the game.

The mid week games in the Europa Cup by Benfica didn't help in today's game
