Ned Dixon ("Dickie") Hemric (born August 29, 1933 in Jonesville, North Carolina) is a former basketball player for Wake Forest University (1952–1955) and the NBA's Boston Celtics (1955–1957).

Hemric played the first two college years at Wake Forest when the school was a member of the Southern Conference. The ACC Male Athlete of the Year was created at the start of the 1954 season, and he played his last two seasons in the ACC, setting conference records for scoring and rebounding that were untouched for the first 50 years of the conference's existence. He was honored as the second recipient of the ACC Athlete of the Year in 1955. In 2002 Hemric was selected to the ACC 50th Anniversary men's basketball team, honoring the fifty greatest players in Atlantic Coast Conference history.

On February 25, 2006, Hemric's scoring record of 2,587 points was broken by Duke University's J. J. Redick. Hemric's record of 1,802 career rebounds has never faced a serious challenge — his contemporary Ronnie Shavlik was second on the list with 1,592 rebounds from 1954–1956, and the closest person to challenge the record since then was current NBA power forward Tim Duncan, who pulled down 1,570 rebounds in his career at Wake Forest from 1994–1997. Hemric is now third all-time in ACC scoring, behind Redick and Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina.

Hemric held for 55 years the NCAA record for free throws made in a career with 905, until being passed by the University of North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough on Feb. 28, 2009. [1]
