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All three clubs, Braves of Customs Male Side and Female side and Tema Youth have withdrawn from the tournament due to unknown reason in certain aspects and financial reasons in other aspects.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.

Both Braves' sides are yet to make their reasons for pulling the plug on their African journey official despite repeated attempts to make contact with the club's top brass. The Male side looked primed to travel across the border but word begun to set in the side was yet to leave Ghana mere hours to the start of the competition prompting speculation about their readiness.

However, a team official, speaking on terms of anonymity, confirmed the team will not participate in the nine day competition which runs till October 30. All three clubs earned the slots after placing first and second in the male division and first in the female division last season.

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.
