Donald Nathaniel "Donnie" Boyce (born September 2, 1973) is an American former professional basketball player.
He currently works as head coach for Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois. He played college basketball at the University of Colorado.
Boyce played high school at Proviso East in Maywood, Illinois, along with future NBA draft picks Michael Finley and Sherrell Ford. Boyce played collegiately at the University of Colorado, finishing his career in 1995 as the Buffaloes' all-time leading scorer (until Richard Roby surpassed him in 2008).
In September 1993, Boyce was arrested for allegedly taking part in a drug deal outside a fast-food restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. Boyce stated he never took or used drugs.

On an 11-year career, Boyce played in the CBA and USBL and also had playing stints in Argentina and France.
Boyce began his coaching career in 2011 with his alma-mater, Proviso East. His team finished with a 32-1 record in 2011-12 and a 29-5 record in 2012-13, losing both times in the IHSA tournament to the Jabari Parker-led Simeon Wolverines (in the state title game in the former year, and the state semi-final in the latter.)
On October 19, 2015, Boyce was hired by the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League to work as an assistant coach.
Boyce was reinstated as Proviso East Head Coach at the beginning of March 2016.
