Serge Zwikker (born April 28, 1973 in Maassluis, Netherlands) is a Dutch-American basketball player. He came to the United States and played high school basketball for legendary coach Stu Vetter, at Flint Hill Prep and then Harker Prep. Zwikker played four years of college basketball for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under coach Dean Smith. Though he saw limited playing time his first two years, relieving starter Rasheed Wallace from the bench, the game of Zwikker's college career came March 17, 1995 against Murray State University. Plagued by an ankle injury, Wallace scored only six points before Smith benched Wallace for good, three minutes into the second half. Zwikker finished with 19 points (including 7 of 8 free throws) as he and Jerry Stackhouse led the Tar Heels to a 80-70 win.[1] Zwikker became the Tar Heels' starting center following Wallace's departure in the 1995 NBA Draft.[2]

Zwikker was selected by the Houston Rockets with the first pick of the second round (30th overall) in the 1997 NBA Draft, and spent one season on the Rockets' bench. To date, he has not recorded minutes in a single NBA game.[3]

Zwikker played Euroleague basketball in 1998-99, averaging 3.3 points for TAU Cer√°mica in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, but was released after seven games.[4]
