2017 Tema Basketball League Champions Tema Community 4 will not compete in the league’s preseason competition.
This follows the team’s decision to pull out of the Campaign Tournament taking place in the latter half of this month prior to the start of next season’s campaign.
C4 miss out on the chance to get its feet wet ahead of next year’s competition by playing in the tournament after clinching the league title in stunning style.
C4 beat Ashaiman Lions in two straight games in the finals series to shock the team highly touted to lift the championship; the loss is Ashaiman’s second straight miss in the finals.
Per reports reaching Basketballghana.com, C4 has cited being tired and a high possibility of being shorthanded due to the commitment of several players during the tournament.
The Campaign Tournament commenced on December 16 at Tema’s Chinese Court and games are set to be played later this week.
Akatsi Rifles meet Ghana Police, Francophone Star take on Ghana Navy and Ashaiman Lions play Tema Heat.
