Sioux Falls, S.D. (Jan. 26, 2012) The Sioux Falls Skyforce announced today that the team has acquired center Keith Benson from the available player pool.

Benson was waived by the Atlanta Hawks in training camp after being selected in the second round (48th overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft. He averaged 14.1 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in four seasons (135 games) at Oakland University.
