A 6'7" forward from Rutgers University, Greacen was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the 1969 NBA Draft and by the Miami Floridians in the 1969 ABA Draft. He had played high school basketball for Merchantville (NJ) High School and helped lead Merchantville to the NJSIAA Group II State Championship in 1965.
In Greacen's three varsity seasons with Rutgers, he scored 1,154 points. As a sophomore in 1967 he teamed with fellow Rutgers Hall of Famers Bob Lloyd and Jim Valvano to lead the team to a 22-7 record and the first-ever post-season appearance in Rutgers' basketball history. The Scarlet Knights finished third in the 1967 NIT.
