Petr Benda - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: CEZ Basketball Nymburk
Career: BC BVV ZS Brno (Czech Republic-Mattoni NBL, 2001-03); A Plus ZS Brno BC (Czech Republic-Mattoni NBL, 2003-07); CEZ Basketball Nymburk (Czech Rrepublic-Mattoni NBL, 2007-13)

Benda is one of the veterans of the Czech team and only one of four players of the current squad who played the last time that the Czechs appeared in the Final Round of a EuroBasket (Spain, 2007). He will not make the trip to Slovenia as he got side-lined with an injury. Benda is notorious for his dedication, even proven by the fact that he has only changed his club twice in his long career after leaving his native Jihlava. He has won six consecutive Czech League titles with Nymburk, after he joined them in 2007. Benda has been Mr Consistency every time has suited up for the national team in the past decade (13.0 points and 5.3 rebounds-per-game at EuroBasket 2007; 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds-per-game in the EuroBasket 2013 Qualification Round) and it is for this reason that he will be sorely missed in Slovenia.
