A native of Brooklyn, NY, Mickey Greenberg played basketball from 1959-63, and baseball in 1962 and 1963. He earned his bachelor's degree in biology and English in 1963.
A two-sport athlete as an upperclassman, Greenberg's most significant achievements came during his four years as a guard on the basketball court, where he became the school's first 1,000-point scorer - achieving the point total in just 60 career games.
During his junior season, Greenberg led Harpur to a 14-3 record - a winning percentage (.823) that stands as the best in the program's first 50 years.
In each of his final two seasons, Greenberg averaged more than 21 points per game and ended his career with 1,013 points. His 25.1 scoring average as a senior ranks Greenberg second in school history and he also shares the single-game scoring mark, a standard he established with 45 points against Utica as a senior.
Greenberg was named back-to-back Harpur College "Athlete of the Year" in 1961-62 and 1962-63, and was the recipient of the very first Jake Pitler Award in 1963.
Following an illustrious career at Harpur, Greenberg later played for the Washington Generals, the touring opponents of the Harlem Globetrotters.
