Club info

Promitheas Patras is coming off the most exciting season in club history, which completed a rise from the very bottom to the runner-up spot in Greek basketball in just over one decade. It was a historic season for the club from western Greece, one that saw the team reach the Greek League playoff finals for the first time ever. Promitheas finished fourth in the regular season with 16-10 record and swept PAOK Thessaloniki in best-of-three quarterfinal series. In the best-of-five semis, Promitheas faced top-ranked AEK Athens and protected its home court by winning Games 2 and 4. In the decisive Game 5, Promitheas went on the road and pulled out a thrilling 84-85 overtime win to clinch a place in the finals with Leonidas Kaselakis collecting 17 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the way. Panathinaikos OPAP Athens swept Promitheas in the playoff finals, thus ending the club’s dream season. Panathinaikos was also the team that ousted Promitheas in the Greek Cup quarterfinals, the furthest Promitheas ever got in that competition, and the team from Patras also made its debut in European competitions by playing in the Basketball Champions League where it lost to Iberostar Tenerife in the eighthfinals. Now, Promitheas is poised to build on all its recent success and take on the challenge of competing for the first time in the 7DAYS EuroCup.

History

ASP Promitheas was founded in 1985 in Patras, with the club name coming from the titan in Greek mythology, Prometheus, and it started competing in the lowest division of Greek regional basketball a year later. The team earned promotion in its very first year in the local league, but Promitheas spent two decades battling in the lowest ranks without much ambition. However, months after getting relegated back to the lowest division, the club started to focus more on its organization in the fall of 2006. The results were instant. In each of the next three seasons, Promitheas earned promotion to a higher regional level. Guided by Coach Giannis Kotsonis, the team reached the top regional division for the first time in 2009 and competed there for four seasons. With Coach Kostas Douvas at the helm, Promitheas reached the playoff finals in the 2012-13 campaign and finally earned promotion to the national fourth division. That proved to be only one stop on this journey to prominence. With Makis Giatras taking over on the bench, the team used a 21-3 record to win its group and earn another promotion. A 24-2 record a year later got Promitheas to Greek’s second division. In 2015-16, Promitheas finished fourth in the second division regular season and came up just short of earning promotion after losing to Faros Keratsini. However, when Keratsini decided not to use its right to advance, Promitheas was next in line to move up and history was made; Promitheas joined the Greek elite. After earning seven promotions to move up eight ranks - from the very bottom to the elite - in only 10 seasons, Promitheas fared well in its first-ever season in Greek’s top flight with 10-16 record - one win shy of a playoff spot. In the 2017-18 season, Coach Giatras returned to the bench after a year away and with Mouhammad Faye, Milan Milosevic and Nikos Gikas leading the way, Promitheas finished third in the regular season behind only Greek giants Panathinaikos and Olympiacos Piraeus. After getting past Lavrio in the quarterfinals for its first-ever playoff win, Promitheas was swept by Olympiacos in the semis and lost to PAOK Thessaloniki in the third-place series. However, the strong foundation was already in place, allowing Promitheas to keep making history last season. The club is now is set to face its biggest challenge yet when it makes its 7DAYS EuroCup debut.
