Three clubs set to represent Ghana in the FIBA Zone Three Africa Championship have pulled out of the competition at the last instance prior to the start of the tournament.

All three clubs, Braves of Customs Male Side and Female side and Tema Youth have withdrawn from the tournament due to unknown reason in certain aspects and financial reasons in other aspects. Tema Coach Emmanuel Quaye made the official announcement his side will not compete in Lome, Togo due to financial challenges that have hampered the club's preparations.

Braves Male side won last season's league trophy and successfully defended it by beating last season's finalist Tema Youth 67-52. Clubs from West African nations including Burkina Faso, Nigeria and Mali are competing in the tournament.
