Tencho Banev - EuroBasket 2011 Profile
Team 2010-11: Lukoil Academic Sofia (Bulgaria-NBL)
Career: Lukoil Academic Sofia (Bulgaria-NBL, 1997-2004), MBC Odessa (Ukraine-Superleague, 2004-05), Beykozspor (Turkey-TBL, 2005-06), Iraklis Thessaloniki (Greece-A2, 2006-07), Lukoil Academic Sofia (Bulgaria-NBL, 2007-11)

A veteran of the Bulgarian National Team, Tencho Banev is a hard-nosed player who brings a no-nonsense style to the center spot. Normally utilised coming off the bench, he is someone who can unsettle the opposition with his aggression both on the glass and when setting big screens which he always pushed to the absolute limit. While he isn't necessarily as silky or smooth to watch as many of his peers in the paint, Banchev is no less effective. In fact he is a solid finisher and an imposing presence who will score a few baskets and pull down some boards, things which always make him likely to make an effective cameo. While he has had some injuries in recent times, he should be back in the mix and since he knows what it is like to play at a EuroBasket tournament, his influence on the rest of the team and the younger players could be important.
