Knight from the Armour - Sep 10, 2013

Paul's Articles

American guard Brent Benson (185-G-85, college: Texas St.) has been chosen as the man to lead the Birmingham Knights' charge into a first BBL season - and it's a role he was born to fill.

The Knights have assembled a young core of local talent as they prepare for Birmingham's return to Britain's top flight.

But in Benson, a 27-year-old combo guard who spent last season with Springfield Armor - the NBA Development League team of the Brooklyn Nets - they have an experienced campaigner, built for a leadership role.

It was Warwickshire Basketball Association Hall of Famer Roger Payne who played the leading role in bringing Benson to the attention of head coach Paul Douglas. But from there, coach and player were on the same page.

"My agent Roger Payne sent some video to Coach Douglas and his staff," revealed Benson, who undertook his basketball education at NCAA Division 1 Texas State University after growing up in Georgia.

"They did some research on me, and thought I would be a great fit for this team with my leadership, experience and basketball background.

"I did my research on the club, Coach Douglas and the city and thought it would be a perfect fit for me as well.

"Once I talked to Coach Douglas I knew I wanted to be in Birmingham. I love his coaching style and his knowledge about the game. My role is pretty much being a leader on and off the court."

Benson inherited his capacity to lead from his father, Bruce Benson, who owned a cleaning business back in the States prior to his retirement.

But the player's professional experiences with Polish EuroLeague side Asseco Prokem and in the NBDL, reinforced these beliefs, to the point where he is ready to take the title of leading Knight.

"I was blessed to go over to Poland right out of college, I played on the top team with Asseco Prokem," recalled Benson.

"That was a learning experience for me, practicing with the best players in Poland, the best coaching staff night-in and night-out. I just learned a lot about the game.

"My experience with the Springfield Armor helped me out a lot too. Not just playing the game but understanding the game, studying the game, being prepared and being sharp at all times.

"That's part of being a leader so I feel I can bring that to our younger players.

"My father always preaches to me be a leader not a follower, so it was natural to come on the court with me."

On the court, Benson brings an impressive armoury of skills. He is a dogged defender with quick feet and a silky stroke that will be vital as he looks to the lead the Knights in more ways than one, for more than a single season.

"I can create for my team-mates and myself on the offensive end - leadership and defense intensity as well," said Benson.

"I have no personal goals just help this team be successful in the first year. Give the fans excitement and want to come back.

"Something long term would be great and I would love for it to be here in Birmingham with the Knights."

Benson will make his BBL bow when the Birmingham Knights tip off their maiden campaign at the reigning champions Leicester Riders on Saturday, September 28. For ticket information visit bblbirmingham.co.uk/tickets.
