College career

Douby made a big impact as a true freshman at Rutgers, highlighted by his great play in Rutgers' NIT semifinal game against Iowa State, in which he scored 35 points to lead Rutgers to an overtime victory. Rutgers, however, went on to lose to Michigan in the NIT Finals. Nonetheless, the Douby reign at Rutgers began, starting with "I Doubylieve" t-shirts made during the tournament. Quincy was named to the Big East All-Rookie Team to honor his stellar freshman year.

Douby improved on his freshman season by averaging 15.1 points a game (11th in the Big East) and 3.38 assists a game, while posting a strong assist-turnover ratio (2 to 1). He was named Big East player of the Week along with West Virginia's Tyrone Sally the week of November 29. Despite finishing last in the Big East Rutgers was able to go on and upset Notre Dame in the first round of the Big East Tournament behind the play of Douby.

In his junior year, Douby became one of the top guards in the Big East and was named to the All Big-East team. He led the Big East in scoring with 25.4 points a game, becoming the first Rutgers player to lead the Big East in scoring. In addition, he broke the all-time single season scoring record at Rutgers. Douby scored a Big East season high and Carrier Dome opponent record 41 points at Syracuse on February 1, 2006. After leading Rutgers to a first round victory in the Big East tournament over Seton Hall, Douby dropped 31 over the #2 Villanova Wildcats. Despite keeping it close in the first half, Villanova ran away with it in the second half ending Rutgers' hopes of an NCAA tournament berth. On May 15, 2006, Douby officially hired an agent making himself ineligible to return to college. During his three seasons at Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights had a winning record and Douby is considered by many sports pundits to be one of the best players to come out of Rutgers in decades.

Professional career

On June 28, 2006, Douby was drafted in the first round by the Sacramento Kings, nineteenth overall. Douby became the first Rutgers player to be drafted in the first round since Roy Hinson in 1983. On July 3, 2006, he was signed to a contract by Sacramento.[1]

On February 18, 2009, Douby was waived by the Kings to make room for the trade that included Brad Miller and Drew Gooden.[2]

On March 11, 2009, Douby was picked up by the Erie BayHawks of the NBA Development League.[3]

On March 24, 2009, he was called up by the Toronto Raptors and signed to a 10-day contract to replace guard Marcus Banks,[4] who left the team for season-ending surgery. On April 3, he was signed to a second 10-day contract,[5] which was extended up until the end of the 2008–09 season ten days later.[6]

On November 12, 2009, Douby was released by the Raptors. He did not appear in any games for them during the 2009-10 NBA season.[7]

On November 17, 2009, Douby signed a one year contract with the Turkish team Darüşşafaka Cooper Tires.[8]
