Charles "Chuck" Vincent (born c. 1975) is an American former basketball player known for his collegiate career at Furman University between 1994 and 1998.

After graduating from Northern High School[1] in his hometown of Durham, North Carolina,[2] Vincent made an immediate impact as a freshman while playing for the Paladins. He averaged 12.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game and was named the Southern Conference (SoCon) Freshman of the Year in 1995.[1][3] The next year, Vincent earned a Second Team All-Conference nod behind 15.0 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.[1]

During Vincent's final two seasons he earned back-to-back First Team All-SoCon honors.[3] As a junior he ranked 22nd nationally (1st in the SoCon) in rebounding with a 9.7 per game average, and then as a senior his 57.5% field goal percentage ranked 29th nationally.[1] In Vincent's final three seasons he led Furman in both scoring and rebounding.[1] Although he never led the Paladins to a postseason tournament berth, he was named the SoCon co-Player of the Year in 1997–98.[1]

After college he played professionally in Finland.[4]
