A.C. Doukas Basketball, commonly known as Doukas B.C. or Doukas, (Greek: Αθλητικός Σύλλογος Εκπαιδευτηρίων Δούκα/Α.Σ.Ε.Δ.) is a Greek professional basketball club that is based in Marousi, Athens, Greece. It was founded in 1979, by Doukas School, and its team colours are blue and white. The home arena of the club is the Dais Gymnasium in Marousi. Currently, the men's team plays in Greek A2 League, the Greek second division.

History[edit]

Doukas' basketball team was founded in the early 1990s. In the 2013–14 season, the club finished in 10th place in the Greek B League, and remained in the third division.[1] The most successful era of the club's history was the period 2003–2007, when the club played in the A2 Category (second division). In the 2004–05 season, Doukas in finished in 9th place, which was the highest place the club had attained to that point in its presence in the A2 category.

In the 2006–07 season, the club was relegated down to the Greek B League, and from the 2007–08 season, to the 2014–15 season, the club played continuously in the B League. In the 2014–15 season, Doukas finished in 12th place in the B League. But Doukas then merged with the A2 League club Aetos, and was subsequently promoted to the A2.[2]
