Nicholas "Nick" G. Werkman III is an American former basketball player for the Seton Hall Pirates of South Orange, New Jersey.[3] In just three seasons, Nick "The Quick" Werkman compiled 2,273 points and 1,036 rebounds and is currently one of only four players in Seton Hall University history to score 1,000+ points and grab 1,000+ rebounds. Among the nation's top scorers in each of his three seasons, Werkman averaged 32.0 points per game in 1962 (third nationally), 29.5 in 1963 (top scorer), and 33.2 in 1964 (second nationally).[4] His career 32.0 points per game average is ninth all-time in NCAA Division I history.[5] He was inducted into Seton Hall's Athletics Hall of Fame in 1972.[6]

Only several months after Werkman's senior campaign ended, he was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the 5th Round as the 43rd overall selection in the 1964 NBA Draft.[7] Despite being drafted Werkman never played in an NBA game.[7]
