AEK BC is the basketball club of AEK, based in Athens, Greece.

History

AEK were winners of the first unofficial championship of Greece in 1927. That year, the YMCA of Athens organised a championship of the basketball clubs of Greece. Prior to that year, basketball clubs played friendlies or tournaments. AEK won that championship considered "unofficial" because it was organised by the YMCA and not any pan-Hellenic athletic authority. It must have proved a success because the following year SEGAS stepped in and organised the official Greek championship.

When the local/national championship format was scrapped in the 1964 season in favour of a nationwide league, AEK again won the first title defeating Iraklis Thessaloniki - with whom they finished even on points - in a one-game playoff on May 10, 1964, with a convincing 94-74 score. AEK, in fact, dominated the 1960s with only an occasional challenge from Panathinaikos. In 1966, AEK went into the European Champions' Cup Final Four - the first Greek club to do so. Two years later, on April 4, 1968 AEK BC would again break new ground for a Greek club winning the European Cup-Winners' Cup by defeating Slavia Prague 89-82 in the Kallimarmaro before 80,000 fans.

Many years would pass before AEK would again achieve such success again. Other teams dominated the next few decades: Panathinaikos the 1970s, Aris the 1980s and Olympiakos the 1990s.

However, in 1998, AEK went into the final of the Euroleague only to lose to Kinder Bologna 58-44. Then, on April 11, 2000 AEK again faced Kinder in the final of a European Cup and this time were successful winning the Saporta Cup with an 83-76 victory.
